At the start of a turbulent flAt the start of a turbulent flow computations, I noticed that dropping the residual of p eq. to 1e-6 does not change the initial residual of the next corrector much.

In such cases, at fixed relTol an additional pressure corrector drops both p eq. and local continuity residual by 1 order of magnitude. This makes since according Isaa1985 analysis of error. I'm not sure why in the above log this was not the case? Thanks. Best regards, Maka. |
