This paper presents an assessment of performance of parallel pre-conditioners for BICGSTAB solver for numerical solution of the pressure Poisson equation arising in large eddy simulation of turbulent incompressible flows. We explore the performance of geometric multigrid pre-conditioner for the non-uniform grid and compare its performance with additive Schwarz pre-conditioner, Jacobi and SOR(k) pre-conditioners. Numerical experiments have been performed for a wide range of non-uniformity (stretching) of the grid. The fictitious domain geometric multigrid preconditioner shows the best performance followed by the SOR(k) preconditioner.
