As a sequel to "Finite elements in fluids: stabilized formulations and moving boundaries and interfaces" [Tezduyar TE. Finite elements in fluids: stabilized formulations and moving boundaries and interfaces. Comput Fluids, in press, doi:10.1016/j.compfluid.2005.02.011.], in this article we provide an overview of the special methods and enhanced solution techniques we developed in conjunction with the methods described in the accompanying paper. The methods and ideas highlighted here were introduced to increase the scope and accuracy of the stabilized formulations and interface-tracking and interface-capturing techniques highlighted in the accompanying paper. They include special methods for fluid-object interactions, for flows involving objects in fast, linear or rotational relative motion, and for two-fluid flows. They also include enhanced solutions techniques, where we have enhancement in spatial discretization, enhancement in time discretization, and enhancement in iterative solution of non-linear and linear equation systems.
