An Interpolated Differential Operator (IDO) scheme using a new interpolation function is proposed. The gradient of the dependent variable is calculated at the position shifted by a half grid size from that of the physical value. A fourth-order Hermite-interpolation function is constructed locally using both the value and the gradient defined at staggered positions. The numerical solutions for the Poisson, diffusion, advection and wave equations have fourth- order accuracy in space. In particular, for the Poisson and diffusion equations, the Gradient-Staggered (G-S) IDO scheme shows better accuracy than the original IDO scheme. As a practical application, the Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) for two-dimensional isotropic homogeneous turbulence is examined and a comparable result with that of the original IDO scheme is obtained. The G-S IDO scheme clearly contributes to high-accurate computations for solving partial differential equations in computational mechanics.
