Abstract : Kinetic BGK numerical schemes for the approximation of incompressible Navier-Stokes equations are derived via classical discrete velocity vector BGK approximations, but applied to an inviscid compressible gas dynamics system with small Mach number parameter, according to the approach of Carfora and Natalini 2008. As the Mach number, the grid size and the timestep tend to zero, the low Mach number limit and the time-space convergence of the scheme are achieved simultaneously, and the numerical viscosity tends to the physical viscosity of the Navier-Stokes system. The method is analyzed and formulated as an explicit finite volume-difference flux vector splitting FVS scheme over a Cartesian mesh. It is close in spirit to lattice Boltzmann schemes, but it has several advantages. The first is that the scheme is expressed only in terms of momentum and mass compressible variables. It is therefore very easy to implement, and several types of boundary conditions are straightforward to apply. The second advantage is that the scheme satisfies a discrete entropy inequality under a CFL condition and a subcharacteristic stability condition involving a cell Reynolds number. This ensures the robustness of the method. Moreover the scheme is proved to be second-order accurate in space if the parameters are well chosen, this is the case in particular for the Lax-Friedrichs scheme with Mach number proportional to the grid size. We show the efficiency of the method in terms of accuracy and robustness on a variety of classical two-dimensional benchmark tests. The method is finally applied in three dimensions to compute the permeability of a porous medium defined by a complex idealized Kelvin-like cell. Relations between our scheme and compressible low Mach number schemes are discussed.
