Abstract

A new numerical method is presented for the solution of two-dimensional potential flow problems. The method combines the most attractive features of orthogonal collocation and finite elements. It is particularly suited to obtaining C**1 continuous solutions in irregular domains because it is much more efficient for problems of this type than a comparable Galerkin scheme. This makes it an interesting method for simulating groundwater flow and mass transport problems. A comparison of the accuracy of the resulting solution with that of the Galerkin finite element method using linear triangles is given, and the convergence properties of the new method are investigated.
