The characteristics of defect correction method are discussed in a sample heat conduction problem showing the numerical solution of the error correction equation can predict the error of the numerical solution of the original governing equation. A way of using defect correction method combined with the existing algorithm for the incompressible fluid flow, is proposed and subsequently tested for the driven square cavity problem. The error correction equations for the continuity equation and the momentum equations are considered to estimate the errors of the numerical solutions of the original governing equations. With this new approach, better velocity and pressure fields can be obtained by correcting the original numerical solutions using the estimated errors. These calculated errors also can be used to estimate the orders of magnitude of the errors of the original numerical solutions.
