convergence issues on steady state solver
i`m new to cfx. i have a converged solution on my course mesh (0.9M elements). however i am having a problem to get a convergence to my steady state solver in a finer mesh (1.2M elements) . i have already go through all the manual and help file that provide in this forum but i still cannot meet the loose convergence criteria (RMS < 1x104). i have started by fine tuning the mesh, use increase and decrease of auto timescale, physical time scale and local time scale factor but the residual remains above the 1x104 even my iteration have reached about 1500. however i have put lift and drag coefficient as my monitor point and it shows almost constant value after 300400 iteration. so i suspected, it maybe because of my BC. i would appreciate if somebody can give me some comments and suggestions on my BC as stated below. A part from of RMS residual variable what other value should i monitor in solver manager as guide towards convergence?
