Asymmetric spatial implicit high-order schemes are introduced and, based on Fourier analysis, the dispersion and damping are calculated depending on the asymmetry parameter. The derived schemes are then applied to a number of inviscid problems. For incompressible convection problems the proposed asymmetric schemes (applied as upwind schemes) lead to stable and accurate results. To extend the applicability of the proposed schemes to compressible problems acoustic upwinding is used. In a two-dimensional compressible flow example acoustic and conventional upwinding are combined. Evaluation of all presented results leads to the conclusion that, of the studied schemes, the implicit fifth order upwinding scheme with an asymmetry parameter of about 0.5 leads to the optimal results.
