SUMMARY
A bridge is built between projection methods and SIMPLE type methods (Semi-Implicit Method for
Pressure-Linked Equation). A general second-order accurate projection method is developed for the
simulation of incompressible unsteady flows by employing a non-linear update of pressure term as
n
pn+1 + (I - n
) pn, where n
is a coefficient matrix, which may depend on the grid size, time
step and even velocity. It includes three- and four-step projection methods. The standard SIMPLE method
is written in a concise formula for steady and unsteady flows. It is proven that SIMPLE type methods have
second-order temporal accuracy for unsteady flows. The classical second-order projection method and
SIMPLE type methods are united within the framework of the general second-order projection formula.
