Chebyshev collocation method and multidomain decomposition for NavierStokes equations in complex curved geometries
A general multidomain decomposition is proposed for the numerical solution of the 2D incompressible stationary NavierStokes equations. The solution technique consists in a Chebyshev orthogonal collocation method preconditioned by a standard Galerkin finite element technique. The preconditioned system is then solved through a Richardson Procedure. The domain of interest is decomposed into quadrilaterals, curved when needed. A Gordon transfinite interpolation performs the curvilinear grid generation of the obtained simplyconnected planar subdomains. The interface conditions, naturally incorporated into the finite element approach, relate neighbor subdomains through the normal jump of appropriate fluxes across internal boundaries, where an integral form of C[supmore » 
A Discontinuous PetrovGalerkin Methodology for Adaptive Solutions to the Incompressible NavierStokes Equations
The discontinuous PetrovGalerkin methodology with optimal test functions (DPG) of Demkowicz and Gopalakrishnan [18, 20] guarantees the optimality of the solution in an energy norm, and provides several features facilitating adaptive schemes. Whereas BubnovGalerkin methods use identical trial and test spaces, PetrovGalerkin methods allow these function spaces to differ. In DPG, test functions are computed on the fly and are chosen to realize the supremum in the infsup condition; the method is equivalent to a minimum residual method. For wellposed problems with sufficiently regular solutions, DPG can be shown to converge at optimal rates—the infsup constants governing the convergence aremore » 
A nonstaggered grid, fractional step method for timedependent incompressible NavierStokes equations in curvilinear coordinates
A numerical method for solving threedimensional, timedependent incompressible NavierStokes equations in curvilinear coordinates is presented. The nonstaggeredgrid method originally developed by C. M. Rhie and W. L. Chow for steady state problems is extended to compute unsteady flows. In the computational space, the Cartesian velocity components and the pressure are defined at the center of a control volume, while the volume fluxes are defined at the midpoint on their corresponding cell faces. The momentum equations are integrated semiimplicitly by the approximate factorization technique. The intermediate velocities are interpolated onto the faces of the control volume to form the source termsmore »
