A higher-order compact (HOC) discretization of generalized 3D convection-diffusion equation (CDE) in nonuniform grid is presented. Even in the presence of cross-derivative terms, the discretization uses only nineteen point stencil. Extension of this newly proposed discretization to semi-linear and convection-diffusion-reaction problems is seen to be straightforward and this inherent advantage is thoroughly exploited. The scheme being designed on a transformation free coordinate system is found to be efficient in capturing boundary layers and preserve the nonoscillatory property of the solution. The proposed method is tested using several benchmark linear and nonlinear problems from the literature. Additionally, problems with sharp gradients are solved. These diverse numerical examples demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of the scheme proposed. Further, the numerical rate of convergence is seen to approach four confirming theoretical estimation.
