Hi all,
Why PISO & SIMPLE algorithms are used in OF for compressible flow problems. These algorithms are for pressure linked equation i.e. incompressible flows and for low Mach no flows. Even density based solver "rhoSonicFoam" uses PISO algorithm why? In compressible flows computation, we solve momentum equation to get velocity, energy equation to get temperature, density from continuity equation and pressure from perfect gas equation. correct me if i am wrong. If this is the case, then why PISO & SIMPLE come into picture. Thanks mecbe

Hi,
I read the thread and it was mentioned that steady state problem has to be solved by Pseudo Transient for stability. Can you give some details on it, because i am in the process of converting the "rhoSonicFoam" inviscid density based transient compressible flow solver(this doesn't uses PISO algorithm). thanks mecbe

Please, define the problem you want to solve, or we cannot give any specific answer. What is the Mach number, for example?
In addition, what do you mean with "converting" rhoSonicFoam? It is already a transient solver, and it doesn't use the PISO algorithm because it is density based. Best,

Hi Alberto,
I want to solve transonic & supersonic inviscid steady flow over missile. Mach No 0.9,1.2,1.8 & 2.5. I saw the "rhoSonicFoam" code, it doesnt uses PISO algorithm, but in tutorial case file, it was there. sorry for that. I want to convert it to steady state solver, bcz transient solver takes lot of time to converge. One more question, can you explain about the slip boundary condition (other than given in the user guide). Also, i want to implement some more inviscid flux discretization schemes like AUSM, HLLC.. Can you give some advice on how to carry on. Thanks mecbe

I will look into those two schemes.
What about implementing new inviscid flux computation schemes like AUSM, HLLC. thanks mecbe

Hi mecbe,
Please reply with AeroFOAM (its written for OF V 1.4.1) compatibility problem in OF V 1.6 + .
