Segrgated vs pressure based solver
hello guys,

Given a simple 3D cold Incompressible flow solution , which solver is recomended segregated or coupled Pressure based solver. My feeling is that coupled would take very less time for convergence compared to segregated and also would give more reliable results since it solves the pressure and velocity equations together. How far is my understanding corect, any data on comparison based on solver schemes? why is not the efault solver as in case of CFX

Thanks Soubhik
