Abstract:

The use of certain nonconforming schemes for solving viscous incompressible flow problems was put on a rigorous foundation, and the resulting theory was used to construct new convergent schemes. The investigator was able to show that a certain nonconforming quadratic element actually has the same accuracy as a well known nonconforming cubic. This is of great practical significance because the costs of implementing the quadratic elements are far less than those for cubics. Keywords Viscous incompressible flow problems Convergent schemes Nonconforming quadratics.
