 December 10, 2007, 01:18 Loops per iteration #1 Anon Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I would like to understand what are the loops that CFX solves per iteration while solving a steady state problem. Is it the multigrid solver that is looping per iteration? I noticed this while plotting max residuals per iteration and it shows max residual at loop # 2 per iteration. Could someone throw some light on this. Thanks

Again this is discussed in the documentation and more details is given in the references in the documentation. Glenn Horrocks
