  • Numerical simulation of MHD (Magnetohydrodynamics) is an important method to study solar-terrestrial physics phenomena. In this paper, three AUSM algorithms, i.e., AUSM, AUSM+, AUSMPW+, were compared in conjunction with the HDC method to eliminate the divergence of the magnetic field. The AUSM+ algorithm is found to be better than the AUSM algorithm and the AUSMPW+ algorithm through the results of Rotor example and Orszag-Tang vortex example. Further, the AUSM+ algorithm is used to simulate the coronal with a six-component grid system. The results show that this algorithm can correctly calculate the large-scale structure of the corona. Also, the HDC method can maintain the divergence-free constraint on the magnetic field.
