 July 12, 2006, 00:44 how to converge the solution for fine mesh #1 kathiravan Guest   Posts: n/a hi experts i am doing one problem related to heat transfer in star cd. my prob is one heated cylinder is placed inside a square cavity. now i want to find out heat transfer coefficient around the cylinder. for coarsh mesh the solver converges very quickly. but for fine mesh it will not converges. for using SIMPLE algorithm it will diverges immeadialy. but my boundry condition everything same for coarsh and fine mesh. so how to attack this problem from very fine mesh. after that can you tell me how to plot graph for theta verses heat transfer coefficient.
