This paper solves the advection–diffusion equation by treating both advection and diffusion residuals in a separate (non-unified) manner. An alternative residual distribution (RD) method combined with the Galerkin method is proposed to solve the advection–diffusion problem. This Flux-Difference RD method maintains a compact-stencil and the whole process of solving advection–diffusion does not require additional equations to be solved. A general mathematical analysis reveals that the new RD method is linearity preserving on arbitrary grids for the steady-state advection–diffusion equation. The numerical results show that the flux difference RD method preserves second-order accuracy on various unstructured grids including highly randomized anisotropic grids on both the linear and nonlinear scalar advection–diffusion cases.
