Abstract

In this paper, we present a new stabilized mixed formulation for incompressible Navier-Stokes equations under which the equal-order interpolation for velocity and pressure is stable. The derivation is based on the variational multiscale formalism and consistent linearization. We compare the proposed formulation with another variant of stabilized formulation, which has been recently proposed and is based on the variational multiscale formalism. In particular, we show that the proposed formulation has better accuracy, and converges in fewer iterations for several representative test problems. We illustrate the robustness of the proposed formulation on a test problem of Reynolds number up to 5,000.
