# Decoupled Time Stepping Methods for Fluid-Fluid Interaction

@article{Connors2012DecoupledTS, title={Decoupled Time Stepping Methods for Fluid-Fluid Interaction}, author={Jeffrey M. Connors and Jason S. Howell and William J. Layton}, journal={SIAM J. Numer. Anal.}, year={2012}, volume={50}, pages={1297-1319} }

A model of two incompressible Newtonian fluids coupled across a common interface is studied. The nonlinearity of the coupling condition exacerbates the problem of decoupling the fluid calculations in each subdomain, a natural parallelization strategy employed in current climate models. A specialized partitioned time stepping method is studied which decouples the discrete fluid equations without sacrificing stability and maintaining convergence. This is accomplished through explicit updating of…
