Construction of Diffusion/Viscous Schemes:

Hyperbolic method can be used as a construction method for a conventional diffusion/viscous scheme. First, discretize the hyperbolized system by upwind schemes, and then discard extra equations and reconstruct the extra variables (e.g., gradients and viscous stresses) from the main variables. The resulting scheme is a robust and accurate schemes for diffusion. Note: These schemes do not require extra variables and equations.

One of the schemes derived from this study, called the aplha-damping scheme, is now employed as a default scheme in a commercial CFD code [ Software Cradle's SC/Tetra ] .

Relaxation methods:

These methods are different from the hyperbolic method considered in this website in that the relaxation time is very small, thus leading to a stiff hyperbolic system or to the usual diffusion restriction O(h^2) for diffusion. The following papers are especially relevant in that the hyperbolic formulation is very similar to the one employed in the hyperbolic method; but the relaxation time is quite different (dependent on the mesh size).

Mixed formulation is different from the hyperbolic method in that the mixed formulation is not hyperbolic.
