non newtonian viscosity problem
I am simulating the problem of blood flow through an artery in 2D considering laminar flow. For this I am using the Walburn and Scneck model to define the blood viscosity using the equation:
mu_lam=K*(strain)^(n-1), where K=14.67*10^(-3) and n=0.7755. In order to define the viscosity I am using the following UDF:
double muinf = 14.67e-3;
double n = .7755;
strain = pow(C_DUDX(c, t),2)+ pow(C_DVDY(c, t),2)+
2*pow(C_DUDY(c, t)+ C_DVDX(c, t),2)+
strain = pow(strain, 0.5);
But, once I try to solve it the solver gives the error: Divergence detected in the AMG solver.
Please help me....
You should repost this in the UDF section of the forum. You will likely get more help.
I think it is because when Strain = 0, you will be dividing by zero. Try adding an if statment in there that says if strain is below some value than mu_lam = some large value... or make stain = pow(C_DU...) + 1x10^(-12),
Thanks for the reply. It works properly.
