 May 16, 2002, 10:28 multigrid solution of 2d euler equations #1 jim Guest   Posts: n/a Hi there I am presently accelerating my flosolver (solving 2d euler equations) using multigrid. I get a fairly good early acceleration for the first classic v-cycles; however afterwards, when shifting to the fine grid (prolongation using simple averaging), I start getting oscillations that become progressively large until the residue fall saturates before reaching convergence. Can anyone tell me how to avoid the problem and how to prolong the data from coarse to fine grid inorder to avoid those oscillations. I am using a finite difference based code. thanks Jim

If have not, maybe there is soemthing wrong with your code, your order of interpolation, your treatment of the boundary condictions on the coarse grid.
