In this paper we present effective preconditioning techniques for solving the nonsymmetric systems that arise from the discretization of the Navier-Stokes equations. These linear systems are solved using either Krylov subspace methods or the Richardson scheme. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our techniques in handling time-accurate as well as steady-state solutions. We also compare our solvers with those published previously. [DOI: 10.1115/1.3059576]
