Figure 9. Comparisons of the convergence rates for the SIMPLE and SIMPLEV methods. Number of iterations required against non-dimensionalised time to convergence. Results are for a 30x30 and 60x60 mesh. Top: Convergence rates for the flow past a square cylinder. Bottom: Convergence rates for the backward-facing step flow.
