Hello Foamers,

I am trying to use pimpleFoam and I used residualControl in the PIMPLE settings in fvSolution file:

Code:
   residualControl
    {      
      p
      {
            tolerance 1e-4;
            relTol 0;
            absTol 0;
      }
    }
When I added that, pimpleFoam did not solve turbulance:

Code:

It is clear that the solver is not executing "turbulence->correct();"
because pimple.turbCorr() is not 1 for some reason

from pimpleFoam.C:
Code:
            if (pimple.turbCorr())
            {
                turbulence->correct();
            }
[Q]: Is this a bug or am I misusing pimpleFoam ??

You can take a look at the case with and without residualControl using the following two links:

what does residualControl do when tolerances can be set at their own places?

I am not sure.. I am just used to it..

I am not using pimpleFoam anymore .. using pisoFoam with less timestep feels safer!

Thanks for the reply..

When I added that, pimpleFoam did not solve turbulance:

It is clear that the solver is not executing "turbulence->correct();"
because pimple.turbCorr() is not 1 for some reason

from pimpleFoam.C:
Code:
            if (pimple.turbCorr())
            {
                turbulence->correct();
            }
[Q]: Is this a bug or am I misusing pimpleFoam ??

You can take a look at the case with and without residualControl using the following two links:

Thanks for your help
Hi.

In pimple control is by default set the flag turbOnFInallIterOnly to true. In order to get turb corr in every PIMPLE iter it is needed to specify

turbOnFInallIterOnly false;

in pimple control.

Hope it helps,

Martin
