Crank-Nicolson Type Method for Burgers Equation

Sachin S. Wani and Sarita H. Thakar

Abstract—In this paper we presented Crank-Nicolson type scheme for numerical solution of one dimensional non linear Burgers equation with Homogeneous Dirichelets Boundary conditions. The difference scheme is shown to be consistent and is of second order in time and space. The numerical solutions are obtained for two test problems for different values of t and constant of diffusivity k. The solutions are compared with existing methods.

Index Terms—Absolute error, burgers equation, convergence, Crank-Nicolson.
