xpqiu is on a distinguished road
Should I limit the pressure gradient when doing steady incompressible simulation with low-quality volume mesh?In other words, can I set the default gradient scheme as

default cellLimited Gauss linear 1;

In this page,, Henry suggested that the pressure gradient should NEVER be limited. But I am not sure the reason behind it.
