Title

A Pressure-Correction Ensemble Scheme for Computing Evolutionary Boussinesq Equations

Abstract

We study a pressure-correction ensemble scheme for fast calculation of thermal flow ensembles. The proposed scheme (1) decouples the Boussinesq system into two smaller subphysics problems; (2) decouples the nonlinearity from the incompressibility condition in the Navier-Stokes equations and linearizes the momentum equation so that it reduces to a system of scalar equations; (3) results in linear systems with the same coefficient matrix for all realizations. This reduces the size of linear systems to be solved at each time step and allows efficient direct/iterative linear solvers for fast computation. We prove the scheme is long time stable and first order in time convergent under a time step condition. Numerical tests are provided to confirm the theoretical results and demonstrate the efficiency of the scheme.
