Hello,

I am simulating diffusion of chlorine dioxide in a room (as steady state) using CFX 4.4 by solving mass fraction equation. Problem does not converge when the effects of buoyancy are included, but it converges well when the buyoncy effects are diregarded. Any light on this !! . I also tried using QUICK differencing scheme for MASS FRACTION1 but with no success.

I am attaching my command file with this post with buoyancy effects commented out.

Thanks ,

Sankalp
