Hi everyone,

I have read here in the forum that one should not relax density in rhoPimpleFoam solver. I couldn't really find further information about this and to my embarassment the source code didn't really enlighten me .
Could someone give any more background information about the under-relaxation of density for pimple algorithm? I would be really interested in this...

Thanks a lot,
