We consider the steady-state equations for a compressible fluid. For low-speed flow, the system is stiff because the ratio of the convective speed to the speed of sound is quite small. To overcome the difficulty, we alter the time evolution of the equations but retain the same steady-state analytic equations. To achieve high numerical resolution, we also alter the artifical viscosity of the numerical scheme, which is implemented conveniently by using other sets of variables in addition to the conservative variables. We investigate the effect of the artificial dissipation within this preconditioned system. We consider both the nonconservative and conservative formulations for artificial viscosity and examine their effect on the accuracy and convergence of the numerical solutions. The numerical results for viscous three-dimensional wing flows and two-dimensional multi-element airfoil flows indicate that efficient multigrid.
