Our recent progress on the development of higher-order reconstructed discontinuous Galerkin (rDG) methods for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) will be presented. The idea behind rDG methods is to combine the efficiency of the reconstruction methods in finite volume methods and the accuracy of the DG methods to obtain a better numerical algorithm in computational fluid dynamics. The beauty of the resulting rDG methods is that they provide a unified formulation for both finite volume and DG methods, and contain both classical finite volume and standard DG methods as two special cases of the rDG methods, and thus allow for a direct efficiency comparison. In our latest work, a reconstructed discontinuous Galerkin method based on a Hierarchical WENO reconstruction, termed HWENO(P1P2), designed not only to enhance the accuracy of discontinuous Galerkin methods but also to ensure the nonlinear stability of the rDG method, is presented to solve compressible flow problems at all speeds on hybrid grids. The developed HWENO(P1P2) method is used to compute a variety of flow problems on hybrid meshes to demonstrate its accuracy, robustness, and non-oscillatory property. The numerical experiments indicate that the HWENO(P1P2) method is able to capture shock waves within one cell without any spurious oscillations, and achieve the designed third-order of accuracy: one order accuracy higher than the underlying DG method, indicating the potential of this rDG method to become a viable, competitive, and perhaps superior DG method over existing FV and DG methods for computational fluid dynamics. Extension of the rDG methods to the incompressible flows, hyperbolic diffusion equation, and the porting of the rDG methods on GPUs will also be presented and discussed.
