Hello all,
does anyone of you know how the poisson equation for the pressure is solved internally for incompressible cases, because a comparison of the residuals of p with the residuals of cfx show big differences. In cfx p converges much faster than the velocity, whereas p in openfoam converges much slower than the velocity, although the booundary conditions are the same.

rolando is on a distinguished road
Are you calculating a transient or a steady state case?
