immortality is on a distinguished road
its the momemntum equation in rhoCentralFoam.
what are equivalents for its terms in CFD form?
                fvm::ddt(rho, U) - fvc::ddt(rho, U)
              - fvm::laplacian(muEff, U)
              - fvc::div(tauMC)
in rhoPimpleFoam its so:
tmp<fvVectorMatrix> UEqn
    fvm::ddt(rho, U)
  + fvm::div(phi, U)
  + turbulence->divDevRhoReff(U)
    fvOptions(rho, U)



if (pimple.momentumPredictor())
    solve(UEqn() == -fvc::grad(p));

    K = 0.5*magSqr(U);
that the temporal,convection and diffusion and source terms are more clear than in rhoCentralFoam.
