I have a quastion about my code.I simulate compressible unsteady turbulent flow and I want to ask you exactly how I implement the pressure correction (SIMPLE-like algorithm for compressible flow).What is the difference with the pressure correction in incompressible flow? Thank you!

This is usually done by appealing to the thermodynamic relation rho = rho(p,h) and assuming the enthalpy is fixed during the outer iterations so that one can approximate drho/dt ~ (drho/dp)*dp/dt. In addition, the enthalpy equation is solved along with the momentum equations to give approximations to (u,v,h). Then the pressure correction equation is solved and the quantities are updated as appropriate. More on this can be found in Peric and Ferziger, pp. 278-287.

It added to the calculations but it is worth it. Otherwise I did just what the previous comment suggested.
