Abstract: Values of the flux components are often desired in potential flow problems. Second-order correct finite-difference analogs are developed for the differential equations defining these flux components. Two iterative methods of solving the resulting finite-difference equations are presented. Experimental results indicate the most efficient value of the iteration parameter and demonstrate that the number of iterations required is approximately proportional to the square root of the number of points in the grid.
