The aim of the paper is to compare the rates of iteration convergence of two staggered numerical schemes: one using successive substitutions and the other the Newton method. In the case of very weakly coupled problems the Newton method is one order faster, but there are specific cases when it is slower than the standard staggered algorithm. In both cases a convergence condition must be verified. The behaviour of the investigated staggered procedures in case of thermo-hydro-mechanical problems are shown on examples.
