We present a preliminary implementation of a Line-Based Discontinuous Nodal Galerkin discretization method (due to Persson, 2013) to solve the compressible Navier-Stokes equations. The scheme is based on applying the one-dimensional nodal discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method on lines in each coordinate direction (using hexahedral elements) instead of solving a three dimensional nodal discontinuous problem. The Line-DG method significantly increases the sparsity of the Jacobian matrices and reduces the nodal connectivity, enabling higher performance. The Minimal Dissipation LDG (MD-LDG) method is used to evaluate the viscous fluxes in the Navier Stokes equations. Some validation cases are presented.
