Residual Question
Hi all,

I got some questions concerning the residuals in FLUENT:

1) Does the compuation of the residuals change, when I change the Solution Method from lets say SIMPLE to SIMPLEC?
I'm asking, because I want to know whether I can compare absolute residuals of one method to residuals of another.

2) Nearly the same question: Is it correct, that residuals of one discretization scheme can't be compared to others (like 1st and 2nd order), since the system of equations changes?

Thanks for any help.
