For example, a pressure-based coupled solver joins existing solver options and improves solution efficiency as well as convergence. Polyhedral meshes apply the flexibility of an unstructured mesh to complex geometries without the overhead associated with a large tetrahedral mesh. And improvements to parallel operation have boosted speed for reading and writing case and data files.
