A defect-correction mixed finite element method (MFEM) for
solving the stationary conduction-convection problems in two-dimension is
given. In this method, we solve the nonlinear equations with an added artificial viscosity term on a grid and correct this solution on the same grid using
a linearized defect-correction technique. The stability is given and the error
analysis in and -norm of , and the -norm of are derived. The
theory analysis shows that our method is stable and has a good precision.
Some numerical results are also given, which show that the defect-correction
MFEM is highly efficient for the stationary conduction-convection problems.
