Divergence detected in AMG solver:k
Hi all,
I am using Eulerian multiphase model with standard kepsilon turbulence model in gasliquid phase, udf for drag coefficient is interpreted successfully but when i start iteration, exactly after 11th iteration it stops showing error as Error: divergence detected in AMG solver:k please help 
Try to reduce Courant number (I am assuming that you are using coupled solver) and also under relaxation factors (for multiphase flow it is really necessary).

Quote:
Maybe you can try to run a previous calculation without resolving the volume fraction (uncheck it on your Solution Controls) to get an initial field for the multiphase run then. 
Thanks for your reply
Its running now but its not converging at all especially the gas phase residuals. Mine is pressure based solver and simulating in steady state condition and the following are the boundary conditions: Velocity inlet velocity of liquid=0 & volume fraction=0 velocity of gas=0.0025m/sec & volume fraction=1 diameter of bubble=0.002m please check these conditions as i am little surprised when i mistakenly put gas volume fraction as zero, then the solution was run fine but when i come to know this mistake i changed the value from zero to one, it starts showing problem in convergence. Help is needed 
drag UDF divergence in eulerian model
Hi there fellow fluent users....this is the first time I've been using UDF's and I'm not a used user of Fluent. I am also getting the similar error.I have interpret the UDF for drag closure in eulerian model for air water system.After 20 iterations I get an error message. The following message appears: divergence detected in AMG solver: k, at this instance the x,y momentum residual values are of the order of 10^12
I am using implicit method the code is: #include "udf.h" #define pi 4.*atan(1.) #define diam2 0.005 DEFINE_EXCHANGE_PROPERTY(clift_new_drag,cell,mix_t hread,w_col,a_col) { Thread *thread_w, *thread_a; real x_vel_w,x_vel_a,y_vel_w,y_vel_a,abs_v,slip_x,slip_ y,rho_w,rho_a, mu_w,reyb,drag_coeff; /* find the threads for the water (primary) */ /*and air (secondary phases) */ thread_a = THREAD_SUB_THREAD(mix_thread, a_col);/* primary phase */ thread_w = THREAD_SUB_THREAD(mix_thread, w_col);/* secondary phase*/ /* find phase velocities and properties*/ x_vel_w = C_U(cell, thread_w); y_vel_w = C_V(cell, thread_w); x_vel_a = C_U(cell, thread_a); y_vel_a = C_V(cell, thread_a); slip_x = x_vel_w  x_vel_a; slip_y = y_vel_w  y_vel_a; rho_w = C_R(cell, thread_w); rho_a = C_R(cell, thread_a); mu_w = C_MU_L(cell, thread_w); /*compute slip*/ abs_v = sqrt(slip_x*slip_x + slip_y*slip_y); /*compute Reynold's number*/ reyb = rho_w*abs_v*diam2/mu_w; if(1.0<=reyb<=10.0) drag_coeff=(29.1667/(reyb))(3.8889/(pow((reyb),2.0)))+1.222; else drag_coeff=(24.0/(reyb))*(1.0+0.15*pow((reyb),0.687)); return drag_coeff; } Thanks in advance.
