AB - In this study we employ von Neumann analyses to investigate the disper-sion, dissipation, group velocity, and error properties of several fully discreteflux reconstruction (FR) schemes. We consider three FR schemes pairedwith two explicit Runge-Kutta (ERK) schemes and two singly diagonallyimplicit RK (SDIRK) schemes. Key insights include the dependence ofhigh-wavenumber numerical dissipation, relied upon for implicit large eddysimulation (ILES), on the choice of temporal scheme and time-step size.Also, the wavespeed characteristics of fully-discrete schemes and the relativedominance of temporal and spatial errors as a function of wavenumber andtime-step size are investigated. Salient properties from the aforementionedtheoretical analysis are then demonstrated in practice using linear advectiontest cases. Finally, a Burgers turbulence test case is used to demonstrate theimportance of the temporal discretisation when using FR schemes for ILES.
