# A convergent staggered scheme for the variable density incompressible Navier-Stokes equations

@article{Latch2018ACS, title={A convergent staggered scheme for the variable density incompressible Navier-Stokes equations}, author={Jean-Claude Latch{\'e} and Khaled Saleh}, journal={Math. Comput.}, year={2018}, volume={87}, pages={581-632} }

In this paper, we analyze a scheme for the time-dependent variable density Navier-Stokes equations. The algorithm is implicit in time, and the space approximation is based on a low-order staggered non-conforming finite element, the so-called Rannacher-Turek element. The convection term in the momentum balance equation is discretized by a finite volume technique, in such a way that a solution obeys a discrete kinetic energy balance, and the mass balance is approximated by an upwind finite volume…
