Hi guys, I'm running a heat transfer simulation with Starccm+ solution converges really slow - I have about 350,000 cells and am using "segregate solver".

Any idea how to make it faster?!

Are you modelling solids too? If so try turning the solid underrelaxation to 1.0

Is it a transient or steady state solution?
