In the present work an implementation of the Back and Forth Error Compensation and Correction (BFECC) algorithm specially suited for running on General-Purpose Graphics Processing Units (GPGPUs) through Nvidia’s Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) is analyzed in order to solve transient pure advection equations. The objective is to compare it to a previous explicit version used in a Navier-Stokes solver fully written in CUDA. It turns out that BFECC could be implemented with unconditional stable stability using Semi-Lagrangian time integration allowing larger time steps than Eulerian ones.
