In this dissertation we will discuss the finite difference method for approximating conservation laws with a source term present which is considered to be a known function of x, t and u. Finite difference schemes for approximating conservation laws without a source term present are discussed and are adapted to approximate conservation laws with a source term present. First we consider the source term to be a function of x and t only and then we consider the source term to be a function of u also. Some numerical results of the different approaches are discussed throughout the dissertation and an overall comparison of
A Numerical Scheme for Axisymmetric Elastic Waves in Solids

This paper is dedicated to Professor Alan Jeffrey, University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, on the occasion of his 65th birthday. 1 Some analytical solutions were obtained, e.g. by Laturelle [1,2] for a half space using Laplace and Hankel transformations, and by Miklowitz [3] for a rod using the approximate MindlinHerrmann theory. These show that the source term complicates the analytical solving of the system in a way that does not occur in the plane problem. Therefore a numerical method giving a good approximate solution will be very useful for practical applications. Hirose and Achenbach [4] developed a timedomain boundary element method to study the elastic wave interaction in an axisymmetric body. For plane problems without a source term, Lin and Ballmann [58] have extended the Godunovtype characteristicbased finite difference methods of gasdynamics for stress waves in elasticplastic solids and have obtained a great number of results. Problems with cylindrical symmetry can be treated in a similar way. Nevertheless, the existing numerical schemes dealing with hyperbolic systems with a source term seem not yet as welldeveloped as those for the systems without a source term. A widely used method is the time splitting technique which alternately solves a system of conservation laws without any source term and a system of ordinary differential equations modeling the source effect. However, it seems that this technique can produce misleading results, see Westenberger and Ballmann [9]. For onedimensional problems, some promising efforts were made by Glimm et al [10], Glaz and Liu [11] and Roe [12]. In this paper, we first propose an explicit finite difference scheme for the numerical integration of hyperbolic PDEs with a source term. Then, this scheme is applied to so...

New NAG Fortran Library routines are described for the solution of systems of nonlinear, firstorder, timedependent partial differential equations in one space dimension, with scope for coupled ordinary differential or algebraic equations. The methodoflines is used with spatial discretization by either the centraldifference Keller box scheme or an upwind scheme for hyperbolic systems of conservation laws. The new routines have the same structure as existing library routines for the solution of secondorder partial differential equations, and much of the existing library software is reused. Results are presented for several computational examples to show that the software provides physically realistic numerical solutions to a challenging class of problems.

We study ordinary nonlinear differential equations which arise from steady nonlinear conservation laws with source terms. Two examples of conservation laws which lead to these equations are the SaintVenant and the Euler equations. In each case there is a reduction to a scalar equation and we use the ideas of upwinding and discretisation of source terms to devise methods for the solution. Numerical results are presented with both the EngquistOsher and the Roe scheme with different strategies for discretising the source terms based on balance ideas.
