solidEquilibriumDisplacementFoam solution algorithm
Hi everybody, I'm trying to understand deeply how the solidEquilibriumDisplacementFoam solver actually works and some help about it would be really appreciable...In particular, i guess that there is a kind of correction loop on the displacement field D, but it is not so clear the meaning of:

- The quantities SigmaExp and Dcorr
- The accelerationFactor (accFac)

Thank you in advance

Hi Vesselin,

I am having the same difficulties here right now.
My current guess is it is somehow a successive overrelaxation,
but I dont get the details figured out.
Did you make any progress on this?

Any hint would be highly appreciated!

Hi Thomas,

I'm sorry but I have abandoned this topic a long time ago...try to repost your questions in a brand new tread, this will increase your chances to get an answer.
