Projection Methods for incompressible Navier Stokes Equations

One of the difficulty for the numerical simulation of incompressible Navier Stokes system is that the velocity and the pressure are coupled by the incompressibility constraint. In 1960s, by Chorin and Temam, the projection methods provide decoupling to overcome this difficulty. The most attractive feature of projection methods is that one only needs to solve a sequence of decoupled elliptic equations for the velocity and the pressure for each time steps.
