Transonic Flow Computation by a Multi-Grid Method
Steady-state flow problems are solved as a rule by some iterative technique. Relaxation methods are the most common ones. The multi-grid (MG) technique can be considered as a variant of a usual relaxation strategy even though it differs conceptually from the latter. The multi-grid method (MGM) has been first applied to transonic problems by Brandt and the present author. A refined and efficient version of this method is described in details by Fuchs M. A short review of the MGM is given here. Other applications and developments of the MGM are described by Brandt  and the references in that paper.
