Two Krylov subspace iterative methods, GMRES and QMR, were studied in conjunction with several preconditioning techniques for solving the linear system raised from the finite element discretisation of the Navier-Stokes equations for hydrodynamic problems. The preconditioning methods under investigation were the incomplete factorisation methods such as ILU(0) and MILU, the Stokes preconditioner, and the Elman-Silvester block triangular preconditioner. It is observed that the GMRES solver with the Elman-Silvester preconditioner provides faster convergence than the other methods studied here.
