The enhanced-discretization successive update method (EDSUM) is a multi-level iteration method designed for computation of the flow behaviour at small scales. As an enhancement in iterative solution of non-linear and linear equation systems, the EDSUM is one of the enhanced discretization and solution techniques developed for more effective computation of complex flow problems. It complements techniques based on enhancement in spatial discretization and based on enhancement in time discretization in the context of a space-time formulation. It is closely related to the enhanced-discretization interface-capturing technique (EDICT), as the function spaces used in the EDSUM are very similar to those used in the EDICT. The EDSUM also has a built-in mechanism for transferring flow information between the large and small scales in a fashion consistent with the discretizations resulting from the underlying stabilized formulations. With a number of test computations for steady-state problems governed by the advection-diffusion equation, we demonstrate that the EDSUM has the potential to become a competitive technique for computation of flow behaviour at small scales.
