simple & cavitation

I have a question considering cavitation modelling. Can anyone tell me how is the SIMPLE algorithm addapted to take into account the cavitation model?

Thanks in advance.

Re: simple & cavitation
Hi Wat,

CFX4 uses a SIMPLE algorithm, but CFX5 does not use SIMPLE. CFX5 uses a fully coupled solver which is much quicker and more robust than SIMPLE.

The details of cavitation modelling is discussed in the documentation.
