This article is about the development and the analysis of an enhanced positive control volume finite element scheme for degenerate convection-diffusion type problems. The proposed scheme involves only vertex unknowns and features anisotropic fields. The novelty of the approach is to devise a reliable upwind approximation with respect to flux-like functions for the elliptic term. Then, it is shown that the discrete solution remains nonnegative. Under general assumptions on the data and the mesh, the convergence of the numerical scheme is established owing to a recent compactness argument. The efficiency and stability of the methodology are numerically illustrated for different anisotropic ratios and nonlinearities.
