Convergence of CFX field in FSI analysis
 
Hello friends

I do the fluid-structure interaction of the aortic valve and blood. I managed the negative element volume and analysis go ahead. I have only one problem. During every coupled interaction I have no convergence for CFX filed.

Have you ever seen similar problem ?? Or may you have same idaes what's wrong??

Hi,

FSI adds another dimension of things to check over a normal static CFD simulation. Have you checked it converges OK without FSI with some geometries typical of what you will get in the simulation? Have you checked the FSI motion updates are small enough that you are resolving the motion properly?

Glenn

I've checked it but only for the first state of geometry, and the fluid converged. During the simulation I had a problem with negative volume element then I decrease the substep. Now the deformation is close to 0.1 mm and I think the FSI motion is small enough. May I should decrease the time of the substep again ? I must admit that I have a quite poor mesh.
