access the source code for SIMPLE
Hi all,
i need to access the source code of SIMPLE algorithm in OpenFOAM. Where do I look?
Secondly, after going into the source code, I'll need to understand one of the functions used there. For eg, there's a piece of code that reads as::
eqnResidual = solve ( UEqn() == -fvc::grad(p) ).initialResidual();

Now, I need to find out how initialResidual is determined/calculated in openFOAM,
how and where
do I look for it??
Is there any command that I can use in the terminal that'll direct me where that particular function is located?
