A Limited Tutorial on Using
Finite Differences in Soil Physics Problems
written by Donald L. Baker
reviewed by H. Don Scott
This is a brief and limited tutorial in the use of finite difference methods to solve problems in soil physics. It is meant for students at the graduate and undergraduate level who have at least some understanding of ordinary and partial differential equations. After an explanation of how to use finite differences in cook-book fashion, the equations, computer code and graphic results are given for three examples: heat flow, infiltration and redistribution, and contaminant transport in a steady-state flow field.
Often, for problems of heat flow, or unsaturated water flow or contaminant transport in soil, there may be no analytic solutions or neat equations describing the result. In such cases, we use numerical methods on a computer. Perhaps the simplest of the numerical methods to understand and to program are finite differences, derived from Taylor series expansions (DuChateau and Zachmann, 1989). Some methods are so simple, they can even be done in a spreadsheet. But in the interests of accuracy, we will only discuss the methods that require some ability to program in a computer language such as C, BASIC or FORTRAN. The examples here given will be in FORTRAN, but can be converted to other languages. Because they are often confusing to the neophyte, we will not discuss Taylor series derivations. Finite differences can be explained and used in cook-book manner, if one is careful. If the reader has no other experience in these methods, he or she should keep in mind that this is a limited discussion. Such issues as stability, convergence, iteration methods, implicitness, discretization errors and non-Darcian flow will not be covered. So the reader should be careful to understand that a great deal more study is necessary to use these methods successfully in many cases. This is only a brief synopsis.

Finite Differences
Another way to search for an explicit representation is to use the method of finite differences . Let us illustrate the method. To use the method of finite differences, generate a table that shows, in each row, the arithmetic difference between the two elements just above it in the previous row, where the first row contains the original sequence for which you seek an explicit representation. Here are the first few rows for the sequence we grabbed from Pascal's Triangle:
differences (D1)
differences (D2)
differences (D3) Notice that the third-differences row is constant (i.e., all 1s). This is the signal we look for in an application of finite differences. If and when we reach a difference row that contains a constant value, we can write an explicit representation for the existing relationship, based on the data at hand. In fact, we can be more specific and say that the existing relationship is a polynomial whose order is equal to the row number of the row in which the constant difference first occurs. In our example, because the constant difference first occurred in the third row of differences, a third-degree, or cubic, polynomial can be found to represent the relationship, based on the ordered pairs we have. The next question: How do we find that polynomial representation?

1-D Finite Differences
The finite difference approach is the most popular discretization technique, owing to its simplicity. Finite difference approximations of derivatives are obtained by using truncated Taylor series. Consider the following Taylor expansions The first order derivative is given by the following approximations: ): Forward Difference ): Backward Difference By substracting ( ) : Centered Difference An approximation for the second order derivative is obtained by adding ( The terms and indicate the remainders which are truncated ( truncation error ) to obtain the approximate derivatives. The centered difference approximation given by ( ) is more precise than the forward difference ( ) or the backward difference ( ) because the truncation error is of higher order, a consequence of cancellation of terms of the expansions when taking the difference between ( ) and ( ). Since the centered difference involves both neighboring points, there is more balanced information on the local behavior of the function.

Finite Differences for 1-D Parabolic Equations
We consider here the 1-D diffusion equation which is discretized in space and time with uniform mesh intervals and timestep . A simple approach is to discretize the time derivative with a forward difference as The solution is known at time and a new solution must be found at time . Starting from the initial condition at , the time evoultion is constructed after each timestep either explicitly , by direct evaluation of an expression obtained from the discretized equation, or implicitly , when solution of a system of equations is necessary. An explicit approach is readily obtained by substituting the space derivative with the 3-point finite difference evaluated at the current timestep. The algorithm, written for a generic point of the discretization, is A fairly general implicit scheme is obtained by discretizing the space derivative with a weighted average of the finite difference approximation at and When , the scheme is fully implicit. The classic Crank-Nicholson scheme is obtained when
