DoubleG is on a distinguished road
Hi all,

I am trying to model a stirred vessel of 1.4m high and 0.5m wide with k-e turbulence model.

The problem is that my residuals for epsilon keep fluctuating, showing very peaky behaviour.

Can anybody help?

For more details about my model see the .txt and the residual plot.

Thanks in advance,
