 Abstract
In this work, a numerical solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations is proposed. The method suggested is based on an algorithm of discretization by mixed finite elements with a posteriori error estimation of the computed solutions. In order to evaluate the performance of the method, the numerical results are compared with some previously published works or with others coming from commercial code like Adina system.
