Good evening all !

How does setting this coefficient help convergence vs. total source and in what units I should input this ?

Thank you !

A source term coefficient helps linearise the equations. And as the fundamental equation solver is linear that makes it easier to converge.

It tells you which units it needs to be in. Have a look in the units box next to the coefficient in CFX-Pre.
