  • Abstract

We consider a new subgrid eddy viscosity method based on pressure projection and extrapolated trapezoidal rule for the transient Navier-Stokes equations by using lowest equal-order pair of finite elements. The scheme stabilizes convection dominated problems and ameliorates the restrictive inf-sup compatibility stability. It has some attractive features including parameter free for the pressure stabilized term and calculations required for higher order derivatives. Moreover, it requires only the solutions of the linear system arising from an Oseen problem per time step and has second order temporal accuracy. The method achieves optimal accuracy with respect to solution regularity.
