Hi all,

Playing with fvSolution, I wonder which solver would be the best for U, k and epsilon. My cases can be external flow or internal flow, low-Re or high-Re turbulence models, but always incompressible ans stationnary.

I tested GAMG and smoothSolver, and notices that smoothSolver starts more easily than GAMG.

What would be your opinion concerning GAMG, PBiCG and smoothSolver ?
