Adding the timedependent terms to a segregated finite element solution of the incompressible NavierStokes equations
Abstract
Todate, several segregated finite element algorithms have been proposed that solve the NavierStokes equations. These have considered only steadystate cases. This paper describes the addition of the timedependent terms to one such segregated solution scheme. Several laminar flow examples have been computed and comparisons made to predictions obtained with both finite difference and finite volume solution schemes. The finite element results compare very well with the results from the other schemes, both in terms of accuracy and the qualitative behavior of the iterative schemes.
