Temperature calculation from sensible internal energy

Hi guys. I'm writing a code using the NACA0012 airfoil tutorial for rhoSimpleFoam compressible solver as a guide.
Actually I'm not able to figure out how the temperature is calculated. I mean, If I'm right everything should be done inside the hePsiThermo.C and thermoI.H files where thermo.correct() and calculate() functions are defined. Temperature calculation is coded this way: Code:
Test = Tnew; Tnew = (this>*limit) (Test  ((this>*F)(p, Test)  f)/(this>*dFdT)(p, Test)); Inside the thermophysicalProperties these are the selected parameters: Code:
thermoType { type hePsiThermo; mixture pureMixture; transport const; thermo hConst; equationOfState perfectGas; specie specie; energy sensibleInternalEnergy; } Code:
template<class Thermo, template<class> class Type> inline Foam::scalar Foam::species::thermo<Thermo, Type>::Es(const scalar p, const scalar T) const { return this>Hs(p, T)  p/this>rho(p, T); } Code:
template<class Thermo, template<class> class Type> inline Foam::scalar Foam::species::thermo<Thermo, Type>::es(const scalar p, const scalar T) const { return this>Es(p, T)*this>W(); } Does anyone of you know what it stands for and why it should be there? I cannot understand exactly which is the whole functional I have to use inside the Newton iterations. Thanks a lot to anyone who can help me.

Thank you for the answer. Unfortunately I've already seen that post and there are two points making it unuseful to me:
1 in that case enthalpy is considered instead of sensible internal energy; 2 the Newton method part is not explained, they just say a Newton method is applied and nothing more. Is there anybody having an answer to my doubats?

The code for the newton method is provided, so I don't see the problem. Or a quick google search for the newton method will provide answers. Following the nice explanation in the link provided, we can find equivalent functions to back out temperature from internal energy  it actually uses the same newton method, just with different inputs :
Code:
template<class Thermo, template<class> class Type> inline Foam::scalar Foam::species::thermo<Thermo, Type>::TEs ( const scalar es, const scalar p, const scalar T0 ) const { return T ( es, p, T0, &thermo<Thermo, Type>::Es, &thermo<Thermo, Type>::Cv, &thermo<Thermo, Type>::limit ); } Caelan

Probably I did not exlain well what I'm looking for. I've already written what you posted in the last reply in the first part of my thread. I know what a Newton method is, I know I have to put F=Es and f=es. The point is that I cannot understand the physical meaning of es or, if you prefer, which is the physical functional I have to put equal zero for the Newton method: x1 = x0  G(x0)/G'(x0). What is G(x) in my case?
