All about the PIMPLE algorithm - Part II

Updated September 28, 2016 at 05:04 by Tobi (Some errors and mistakes)

## Case 3.1 ##

Now we will use the following fvSolution file:
Code:
```PIMPLE
{
nCorrectors            1;
nOuterCorrectors    2;
}```
Compared to Case 2 there is not a big difference. The only difference is that we calculate the pressure - momentum coupling in one time step twice:
1. Calculate momentum
2. Calculate pressure
3. Recalculate momentum from new pressure
4. Recalculate pressure from new momentum
Calculation in OpenFOAM is like:...

#### New explanation (03.10.16) ####
If you are interested in the PIMPLE algorithm and need some reference, you can check out my book which is now extended by 23 new pages, where I explain the PIMPLE algorithm like I do here.

#### Storyboard ####

First I wanted to write a nice story like »Ignaz« but that would only copy the good attention of the author and of course I am not a good story-teller. Therefore I will go directly to the topic and will tell you how...
