Advection with wave packet data

Example [book/chap6/wavepacket] to accompany the book Finite Volume Methods for Hyperbolic Problems by R. J. LeVeque.

Advection with wavepacket initial data.


  • Periodic boundary conditions are used on a domain of length 1 with advection velocity u=1.
  • The output is set to integer times so the pulse should have propagated one period each frame.
  • Try changing clawdata.limiter in to test each limiter.
  • Set clawdata.order = 1 for the upwind method.

Revision history:

  • Converted to Clawpack 5.0 form in 2013.
  • Updated for Clawpack 5.4.0 in January, 2017
