The domain decomposition method is considered as means for handling nonstandard geometries and for speeding up of calculations via multiprocessing. Different variants of this method are investigated anälytically for the model problem and verified numerically for the full Navier- Stokes equations. The proposed algorithm is based on the fourth-order compact discretization schemes for the Navier-Stokes equations in streamfunction-vorticity formulation expressed in terms of a general orthogonal curvilinear coordinate system.
