This paper presents an analytical and numerical approach in studying accuracy deterioration of residual distribution and cell-vertex finite volume methods on triangular grids. Results herein demonstrate that both methods preserve the order-of-accuracy reasonably well for uniformly skewed triangular grids and the L2 errors of both second-order accurate methods behave similarly with values of the same magnitude. On the other hand, the first-order finite volume method has an L2 error of about an order of magnitude higher than its residual distribution counterpart. Both first-order methods are unable to preserve the order-of-accuracy for high-frequency data when the grids are highly skewed although the residual distribution approach has a slightly better performance. Both second-order methods perform quite decently for high-frequency data on uniformly skewed grids. However, the order-of-accuracy of finite volume methods excessively deteriorate when the grids are skewed non-uniformly unlike the residual distribution methods which preserve the order-of-accuracy.
