Hi Foamers,

I have a small issue with the PIMPLE control in OpenFOAM 2.0.1

Basically, when pimple checks the initial residuals for all the fields to decide convergence at each time-step (exiting the pimple loop), it checks it only for the U field. It somehow doesn't check the residuals for fields p and T.

I suspect that since I am running a compressible solver, while creating the fields p and T in my solver, I create them as references to the p and T fields of the thermo class. But even if this was the case, shouldn't the new p and T still have the same names as those of the thermo class??

Can anyone help with this?? Thanks a lot.
