SIMPLEC is a better option for uncomplicated problems, where convergence depends on pressure velocity coupling. In SIMPLEC, the pressure correction under-relaxation factor is generally set to 1.0, which helps speed up convergence.

// To have a good convergence, provide an initial estimate for the velocity field. Asthe wall is moving with a velocity of 1 m/s, in X direction, X-velocity can be set as some fraction of this value say, 0.5 m/s. Very low velocities such as 0.02 m/s canbe set in Y direction.

The solution converges in about 320 iterations, with default convergence criteria
