Abstract : The time-dependent Navier-Stokes equations are a mathematical model for fluid flows that contain two quite different physical phenomena. These phenomena are contained in the formula representing the conservation of momentum and are referred to as convection and dissipation. The optimum numerical reduction from differential to difference equations of the terms that model these two aspects of fluid flow can be quite different. The report is devoted to a simple but systematic study of the numerical methods best suited for the analysis of convection. (Author)
