Default Wall scale not converging

Hi all,

Actually I am analyzing the distortion effects on a complete rotor annulus.. So I need to get the compressor map with and without distortion..For this i initially i analyzed the complete rotor model without distortion, i got the compressor model..When I am keeping the distortion screen in front of the rotor..the problem starts, the wall scale is not converging. I am not understanding the problem in this. but THE MOMENTUM , HEAT TRANSFER AND TURBULENCE GET CONVERGING

Ref pressure= 0 pa
Fluid: air ideal gas
Heat transfer: total energy
Turbulence model: SST
Wall function: automatic
Transitional turbulence: Fully Turbulent.
RPM= 1800
1. How can I resolve this problem?
2. Do I have to go for expert parameters?.. I have found so many options in expert parameters reg convergence of wall scale?
I have added the image of model

Hi Glenn, I guess You know it better

It is very unusual for wallscale not to converge yet the flow equations to converge. Something is wrong with your setup. Is your mesh quality OK? Try a higher quality mesh or running double precision.
