I have a doubt in the PISO loop.
In sonicFoam.C, "phid" is defined by
surfaceScalarField phid =
(fvc::interpolate(rho*U) & mesh.Sf())
+ fvc::ddtPhiCorr(rUA, rho, U, phi)
later in solving for pressure, the code says
+ fvm::div(phid, p, "div(phid,p)")
- fvm::laplacian(rho*rUA, p)
Why are we dividing by p, when defining phid and later multiplying by p, when doing fvm::div(phid, p). The corresponding term in icoFoam is treated expicitly as fvc::div(phi).
So my second question is why is this term being treated implicitly in sonicFoam, but explicitly in icoFoam?
