chtMultiRegionFoam - exchange data between flow field and temperature
 
Dear OpenFOAMers,

I am wondering if anyone has tried to vary the communication frequency between flow field and temperature. For some chtMultiRegionFoam cases, the flow field change slightly while the temperature is still evolving. And it is quite expensive to solve for the flow field than the temperature field, hence, I would like to solver the velocity once while solving the temperature field, say 5 times, then, exchange data.

Any suggestion?

Thanks!

Pei
