Hi CFD friends,

I have a question which is,

What method CFX use to solve the navier stokes equations?

I know that uses a CVFEM approach but is it a SIMPLE-Like algorithm??? or another one??

Best regards...

This is described in the documentation and there have been plenty of posts on the forum about it too. Do a search for them.

CFX is a finite volume solver which uses a coupled solver. It does not use SIMPLE or related segregated PV coupling algorithms.
