A high order projection hybrid finite volume – finite element method is developed to solve incompressible and compressible low Mach number flows. Furthermore, turbulent regimes are also considered thanks to the k–ε model. The unidimensional advection-diffusion-reaction equation is used to construct, analyze and assess high order finite volume schemes. Two families of methods are studied: Kolgan-type schemes and ADER methodology. A modification of the last one is proposed providing a new numerical method called Local ADER. The designed methods are extended to solve the transport-diffusion stage of the three-dimensional projection method. Within the projection stage the pressure correction is computed by a piecewise linear finite element method. Numerical results are presented, aimed at verifying the formal order of accuracy of the schemes and to assess the performance of the method on several realistic test problems.
