Abstract
Finite volume methods with co-located variables for incompressible flow suffer from spurious pressure oscillations unless a stabilization method is applied. Variations of the pressure-weighed interpolation (PWI) method are typically used for this purpose. But the PWI method does not only prevent spurious oscillations. Counter-intuitively, it also simplifies the approximation of the Schur complement (pressure matrix) which appears in iterative solution methods such as SIMPLE.
