Numerical solutions of axisymmetric Taylor vortex flows have been calculated using Multigrid Continuation Techniques. Both infinite and finite cylinders are considered, and the results agree well with experiments. New solutions are found in the infinite cylinder case and these, surprisingly, may help in understanding some experimental results obtained in relatively short cylinders. The numerical method proved to be efficient and reliable so that computations with fine grids and long cylinders are easily performed.
