 April 27, 2013, 07:19 LSR (Land Speed Record) car simulation #1 New Member   Maxime Join Date: Apr 2013 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 5 Hi, I'm a student who is doing analysis concerning a wheel driven Land Speed Record car. I've received the datas concerning the maximum speed that the car can reach, which is 460 mph. I am using the software ANSYS v14.0 to draw, mesh the geometry and an old version of FLUENT to run my 3D simulations. Therefore, I've encountered some problems concerning the FLUENT simulation. As I said on the top of this post, the maximum speed of the car will be 460mph, which means that the type of flow is compressible ( Mach Number = 0,6 >0,3). As a consequence, I cannot use the same boundary entities like for a incompressible flow. I used then Pressure Far Field for the right and left side (as pressure far field inlet and pressure far field outlet) and on the top (pressure far field top). The problem is that when I tried to run the simulation on FLUENT, the residuals never converged or when I change some parameters some errors appeared. Here are the parameters I've set in FLUENT for my last simulation : Define : Models : energy equation : Ok viscous model : k-epsilon model (standard) Materials : air : ideal gas from the density Operating conditions : 0 for the gauge pressure Boundary conditions : gauge pressure : 101325 Pa mach number : 0,6 x component flow direction : -1 Turbulence : turbulent viscosity ratio 5% and 5 for the ratio After that in the tab Solve : I initialize from Pressure far field inlet and run the simulation. I think the residuals don't converged because of the parameters but I don't really exactly know what do I have to put. Could you give me some advices concerning them ? Thank you very much
