Default Convergence then Divergence
Posts: n/a
Hello all, I have a question about a simulation I have, that starts converging for a good limit and if left to iterate ore it starts to diverge. in this case is it ok if I consider the results before divergence (after reaching a good limit of convergence)? or does this mean that the whole simulation is diverging and useless?

No. Convergence is just one of the useful parameters to judge you solution. Look at imbalances too and use monitor points. When the imbalances are 0 and the monitor values are constant, and residuals are below 1e-5, then you might have a converged solution. But then you still need to perfroms checks.
