Summary0003329: The option minIter does not work with the linear solver PBiCGStab
DescriptionThe option minIter does not work with the linear solver PBiCGStab.

I tested this option (minIter) with the linear solvers PBiCG, PCG, GAMG, smoothSolver (and all of them with different combinations of preconditioners), and the option minIter worked fine. I also tested this option with different physics (compressible, incompressible, multiphase), and the option worked fine.

The only linear solver that does not take the option minIter is the PBiCGStab.

Despite this, the results seem to be correct (at least for the cases where I checked this).

Steps To ReproduceRun any case using the the linear solver PBiCGStab and set the minIter keywork to 10 (or a larger number).
The linear solver will not iterate to the minimum number of iterations (in this case 10).

I am attaching a fast case that you can use to reproduce the issue. Just run the script


Check first that the PBiCGStab solver is set.
Additional InformationI didn't check if the option maxIter was having the same problem.
TagsNo tags attached.
