SIMPLER algorithm - SIMPLE - Revised
From CFD-Wiki
The revised algorithm consist of solving the pressure equation to obtain the pressure field and solving the pressufre-correction equation only to correct the velocities. The sequence of operations can be stated as:
1. Start with a guessed velocity field.
2. Calculate the cofficients for the momentum equations and hence calculate from momentum equations by substituting the value of the neiboughbor velocities
3. Calculate the cofficients for the pressure equation, and solve it to obtain pressure field
4. Treating this pressure field as , solve the momentum equation to obtain
5. Calculate the mass source and hence solve the p^{'} equation
6. Correct the velocity field by use, by not do not correct the pressure
7. Solve the discretization equations for other if necessary
8. Return to step 2 and repeat until convergence
