lgriffiths is on a distinguished road
I'm writting up my masters research on OpenSource CFD methods. I was wondering if anybody could confirm or correct the following:

rhoSonicFoam & rhoSimplefoam
-are these density correcting equations - i.e. iterate to solve for rho, then get pressure from the equation of state?

correct for pressure and get density from the equation of state.

thanks! any help/advice is certainly appreciated.
