Higher-order Navier-Stokes algorithms are the need of the times to harness emerging computing power. The Taylor Weak Statement (TWS) modified conservation law approach, coupled with higher-degree-basis finite element implementation, is a unique way to accomplish this goal. The TWS approach to improved accuracy conservation law algorithm solutions is presented.
