tellico is on a distinguished road
I've been using a modified simpleFoam solver to include temperature which compiles correctly and is running smoothly however the temperature explodes after the first timestep. Despite the crazy values for T, the U and p results seem to be correct.

I noticed a lot of iterations were required for T and p, so I tweaked the FVsolution file as per this post:

are there any other tricks that I might try to get this model to behave?
