does anybody know if there's a reason for specifying the number of piso iterations/correctors (e.g. using pisoFoam) and not using a convergence criterion for that?
Is it possible to specify a criterion to stop the piso iterations if the criterion (e.g. initial residual of the pressure equation is already smaller then the specified one in fvSolution) is reached?
Thank you for any advice.

The way the piso algoritm works is:
1. Predicts the velocity u* using a semi-implicit equation with u*, pn and un.
end of predictor step
start 1st correction step:
2. Solves a poisson equation for pressure p* using u* and un.
3. solves for u** using u*, p* and un.
end of 1st corrector step
start 2nd corrector step
4. solves for p** using u** and un.
5. solves for u*** using u**, p** and un.
end 2nd corrector step.
This are the 2 piso iterations programed by default in pisoFoam, u*** and p** are taken to be close enough to u(n+1) and p(n+1) (see
Solution of the implicitly discretised fluid flow equations by operator-splitting R. I. Issa)
If you need it, you can do more corrector steps to achieve a better solution (using high order discretizations). In the article Issa demonstrates that the magnitude of the truncation errors in a 2 step piso are of the same order as those introduced by second order discretization schemes, so further iterations are not needed.
