Efficient methods for solving the steady Navier-Stokes equations

The Navier-Stokes equations (NSE) model the motion of incompressible viscous fluids and are widely used in engineering and physics, etc. In many applications, the time-averaged information is very often the quantity of interest, so this talk focuses on finding the numerical solutions  of the steady Navier-Stokes equations (SNSE). We introduce a few improvements to the commonly used Picard iteration for solving the SNSE  from different aspects, like shortening the required number of iterations and reducing the computational cost for each iteration.
