Abstract

A multigrid algorithm, in conjunction with the finite element method, is proposed and applied to the Navier‐Stokes (N‐S) equations. A smoothing process is effected using a preconditioned conjugate gradient solution method and the technique is demonstrated by solving laminar flow problems.
