The enhanced discretization and solution techniques are among the advanced computational methods we rely on in simulation and modeling of complex flow problems, including those with moving boundaries and interfaces. The set of enhanced discretization and solution techniques includes those based on enhancement in spatial discretization, enhancement in time discretization, and enhancement in iterative solution of nonlinear and linear equation systems. The enhanced-approximation linear solution technique (EALST) was introduced to increase the performance of the iterative technique used in solution of the linear equation systems when some parts of the computational domain may offer more of a challenge for the iterative method than the others. The EALST can be used for computations based on semi-discrete or space-time formulations.
