      A conical diffuser has been widely used in mechanical and mine engineering. DLR k-ε turbulent model is discreted by finite difference method. A full implicit difference scheme of high precision based on 13 points node stencil is constructed.Large sparse matrices with 13 diagonals are formed.The sparse matrices are compressively stored by three one-dimension arrays for saving memory.The algebraic multigrid method is a popular fast algorithm which is used to solve the discrete systems of differential equations. Numerical method of integrating the DLR k-ε turbulent model with the algebraic multigrid method are posed and the detailed implement process is given . Numerical experiments are shown that the computational efficiency is improved and the numerical results agree well with the experiment results.
