On 1.6-ext after using smoothSolver for U and setting nonOrthogonalCorrector to 0, residual is acting similar to 22x version but drops a little slower. I think the difference is due to using bounded scheme on 22x.

Thank you very much.

Hi Daniel,

I have found this thread and would be interested in your setup. But unfortunately, the link does not work anymore. Can you reupload it or send me a private message where I can find the file.

Thank you very much

I have also changed U solver to smoothSolver.

results are similar to fluent.

I will upload the case.
