Re: How solver works?
The initial values are set via the PIL variables FIINIT(PHI) where PHI is the dependent variable. The default values are 1.E10. The solver can operate slabwise (at each iz slab in the z direction solve for each phi in turn) or wholefield (for each phi solve for aa values simultaneously over the whole field). Usually, the pressurecorrection equation (continuity) and scalar variables are solved wholefield. A SIMPLE based algorithm is used, iei segregated solution of the pressure and velocities.
