I ran cavity case 200x200 bothI ran cavity case 200x200 both with version 1.1 and 1.2 32 bit,
version 1.2 took 2237 s while, version 1.1 took 1322 s version 1.2 was 0.6 times slower than 1.1. I checked the solver output at Time = 0.33, version 1.2 is taking much more iterations to reach the the solution compared to 1.1. I then cheched the case description in both versions, there was one difference in system/fvSolution dictionary: PISO { nCorrectors 2; nNonOrthogonalCorrectors 0; pRefCell 0; pRefValue 0; } the last two line in the PISO dictionary has been added in 1.2. I also noticed some small changes that has been done in icoFoam.C solver (is it just a syntax change). Can any body explain what is the reason behind the speed difference. Here is some output. Thanks! ------------------------------------ version 1.2 ------------------------------------- Time = 0.33 Mean and max Courant Numbers = 0.113538 0.985332 ICCG: Solving for p, Initial residual = 1.1225e-06, Final residual = 9.13572e-07, No Iterations 48 time step continuity errors : sum local = 8.49873e-11, global = -9.80646e-20, cumulative = 4.47845e-18 ICCG: Solving for p, Initial residual = 1.74346e-06, Final residual = 9.19236e-07, No Iterations 49 time step continuity errors : sum local = 8.649e-11, global = 2.55935e-20, cumulative = 4.50405e-18 ExecutionTime = 2123.82 s --------------------------------- version 1.1 --------------------------------- Time = 0.33 Max Courant Number = 0.985328 ICCG: Solving for p, Initial residual = 1.1782e-06, Final residual = 9.46485e-07, No Iterations 1 time step continuity errors : sum local = 8.90883e-11, global = 1.01824e-19, cumulative = -3.82427e-18 ICCG: Solving for p, Initial residual = 1.19506e-06, Final residual = 8.92651e-07, No Iterations 7 time step continuity errors : sum local = 8.43076e-11, global = -1.2003e-19, cumulative = -3.9443e-18 ExecutionTime = 1190.61 s Regards, Maka |

Hi Maka:
have you solved yoHi Maka:
have you solved you problem? I encounter the same question. Could you please help me? Thanks a lot. Guoxiang |

It seems that there is somethiIt seems that there is something that we do not know, that is why no body answered the question. If you managed to know why, I will be grateful if you share the knowledge.
best regards, Maka |
