We describe the construction of parallel iterative solvers for finite element approximations of the Navier-Stokes equations on unstructured grids using domain decomposition methods. The iterative method used is FGMRES, preconditioned by a parallel adaptation of a recent block preconditioner proposed by Kay, Loghin and Wathen. The parallelisation is achieved by adapting the technology of our domain decomposition solver DOUG (previously used for scalar problems) to block-systems. An application of the resultant linear solver to the stability assessment of flows is briefly indicated.
