Divergence-free H(div)-conforming hierarchical bases for magnetohydrodynamics (MHD)Oct 20 2012Jan 31 2013In order to solve the magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) equations with a $\mathbf{\mathcal{H}}(\mathbf{div})$-conforming element, a novel approach is proposed to ensure the exact divergence-free condition on the magnetic field. The idea is to add on each element ... More
