This paper contains a comparison of four SIMPLE-type methods used as solver and as preconditioner for the iterative solution of the (Reynolds-averaged) Navier-Stokes equations. We find SIMPLER preconditioning to be robust and efficient for academic and industrial test cases. The flow around a ship hull at Reynolds number 2E9, for example, on a grid with cell aspect ratio up to 1:1E6, can be computed in 3 instead of 15 h.
