    ABSTRACT: We present here a number of test cases and meshes which were designed to form a benchmark for finite volume schemes and give a summary of some of the results which were presented by the participants to this benchmark. We address a two-dimensional anisotropic diffusion problem, which is discretized on general, possibly non-conforming meshes. In most cases, the diffusion tensor is taken to be anisotropic, and at times heterogeneous and/or dis-continuous. The meshes are either triangular or quadrangular, and sometimes quite distorted. Several methods were tested, among which finite element, discontinous Galerkin, cell centred and vertex centred finite volume methods, discrete duality finite volume methods, mimetic meth-ods. The results given by the participants to the benchmark range from the number of unknowns, the errors on the fluxes or the minimum and maximum values and energy, to the order of con-vergence (when available).

    ABSTRACT: We present the use of the Vertex Approximate Gradient scheme for the simulation of multiphase flow in porous media. The porous volume is distributed to the natural grid blocks and to the vertices, hence leading to a new finite volume mesh. Then the unknowns in the control volumes may be eliminated, and a 27-point scheme results on the vertices unknowns for a hexahedral structured mesh. Numerical results show the efficiency of the scheme in various situations, including miscible gas injection.

    ABSTRACT: We present a number of test cases and meshes that were designed as a benchmark for numerical schemes dedicated to the approximation of three-dimensional anisotropic and heterogeneous diffusion problems. These numerical schemes may be applied to general, possibly non conforming, meshes composed of tetrahedra, hexahedra and quite distorted general polyhedra. A number of methods were tested among which conforming finite element methods, discontinuous Galerkin finite element methods, cell-centered finite volume methods, discrete duality finite volume methods, mimetic finite difference methods, mixed finite element methods, and gradient schemes. We summarize the results presented by the participants to the benchmark, which range from the number of unknowns, the approximation errors of the solution and its gradient, to the minimum and maximum values and energy. We also compare the performance of several iterative or direct linear solvers for the resolution of the linear systems issued from the presented schemes.
