Hi all,

Could somebody please explain the difference between rhoSimpleFoam and rhoSimplecFoam? The User Guide in describes them as:

Steady-state SIMPLEC solver for laminar or turbulent RANS flow of compressible fluids
Steady-state SIMPLE solver for laminar or turbulent RANS flow of compressible fluids

and the CFD-Online Wiki ( calls SIMPLEC the Consistent version of SIMPLE. I'd like to understand what that means and what applications each model is suited for.
