  author={Jean-Luc Guermond and Peter Dimitrov Minev},
  journal={J. Comput. Appl. Math.},
In this paper we present extensions of the schemes proposed in Guermond and Minev (2015) that lead to a decoupling of the velocity components in the momentum equation. The new schemes reduce the solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations to a set of classical scalar parabolic problems for each Cartesian component of the velocity. The pressure is explicitly recovered after the velocity is computed. 
Numerical Analysis of a BDF2 Modular Grad–Div Stabilization Method for the Navier–Stokes Equations

High-order Methods for a Pressure Poisson Equation Reformulation of the Navier-Stokes Equations with Electric Boundary Conditions

Computationally efficient modular nonlinear filter stabilization for high Reynolds number flows
This work proposes a computationally efficient version of the filtering step that only requires the assembly once, and the solution of two symmetric, positive definite systems at each time step, and test a new indicator function based on the entropy viscosity model. Expand

Doubly-adaptive artificial compression methods for incompressible flow
Adaptive artificial compression methods in which the time-step and artificial compression parameter ε are independently adapted are presented, and the computational, cognitive, and space complexities are negligibly greater than that of the simplest, first-order, constant ε, constant k artificial compression method.
