Navier stokes equation, Finite element, control volume, Projection.## Abstract

The aim of this paper is twofold first we willÂ provide a numerical solution of the Navier Stokes equation using the Projection technique and finite element method. The problem will be introduced in weak formulation and a Finite Element method will be developed, then solve in a fast way the sparse system derived. Second, the projection method with Control volume approach will be applied to get a fast solution, in iterations count.
