Convergence
 
hey guys

I am modeling a ventilated space. when I increase the number of cells the mass residual decreases only in an order of one. Is it possible to reduce it further? For a course grid I get a reduction of order 12, when I triple the grid size there is a problem.

Thanks

MK

Just a little tip. Check that the Y+ of any cells near any solid walls is greater than 11, usually cell sizes should be such that the Y+ is in the range of 30 - 500. I have found in my research that failure to stick to the correct bounds for Y+ can result in lack of convergence and very long solution times.

Good luck

James
