An AMG Preconditioner for Solving the Navier-Stokes Equations with a Moving Mesh Finite Element Method

Abstract
Abstract

AMG preconditioners are typically designed for partial differential equation solvers and divergence-interpolation in a moving mesh strategy. Here we introduce an AMG preconditioner to solve the unsteady Navier-Stokes equations by a moving mesh finite element method. A 4P1 – P1 element pair is selected based on the data structure of the hierarchy geometry tree and two-layer nested meshes in the velocity and pressure. Numerical experiments show the efficiency of our approach.
