About divergence for help!
 
Hello,everyone!

Now I have a problem about divergence.

When I do caculation of one case,it will divergence when I do it as tuebulent flow,while when I do it as laminar flow,it will not divergence.

The printfile on screen it as follows: *** GEOMETRICAL CALCULATIONS STARTED *** GEOMETRICAL CALCULATIONS COMPLETED

Re: About divergence for help!
 
Hi appears to be diverging on epsilon. Reduce you turbulence intensity an length scale by an order of magnitude and see if it runs. If so you've probably specified unrealistic turbulence parameters.

Re: About divergence for help!
 
Allan,Thank you for your reply! I have checked the model again,and found that I have set the turbulence model error,that is I have set the parameter of Cmu as User,acturaly,it should be as valuabe 0.09.
