Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to show benefits of deflated preconditioned conjugate gradients (CG) in the solution of transient, incompressible, viscous flows coupled with heat transfer. Design/methodology/approach – This paper presents the implementation of deflated preconditioned CG as the iterative driver for the system of linearized equations for viscous, incompressible flows and heat transfer simulations. The De Sampaio-Coutinho particular form of the Petrov-Galerkin Generalized Least Squares finite element formulation is used in the discretization of the governing equations, leading to symmetric positive definite matrices, allowing the use of the CG solver. Findings – The use of deflation techniques improves the spectral condition number. The authors show in a number of problems of coupled viscous flow and heat transfer that convergence is achieved with a lower number of iterations and smaller time. Originality/value – This work addressed for the first time the use of deflated CG for the solution of transient analysis of free/forced convection in viscous flows coupled with heat transfer.
