Abstract

This paper is concerned with the discretization of an hyperbolic system of conservation laws with stiff relaxation source terms that model a two-phase fluid flow. It is shown both theoretically and numerically that the usual operator splitting method poorly computes the propagation of sound waves in a two-phase medium. We propose a new operator splitting, based on physical considerations. This numerical method gives very good results regarding both the propagation velocity and the attenuation coefficient of sound waves in a two-phase medium.
