Hi All,
I have a question about compressible solvers.

Could anyone know if RhoPimpleFoam is considered as a pressure-based or a density-based solver?
Thank you in advance.

It is a pressure-based solver because you solve an equation for the pressure. The solver is named rhoPimpleFoam because it handles compressible fluid and in this case the pressure equation depends on the time variation of the density (related to the time variation of the pressure using a compressibility factor).

Cheers,
Cyprien
