pressure correction or mesh quality
I am trying to simulate laminar flow in micro-cylinders embedded in a rectangular microchannel so I simplified the model with a unit cell which is a square microchannel including a micro-cylinder with an inlet and outlet by apply periodic boundary condition in the inlet and outlet (I used mass-flow rate for inlet boundary condition).
The point is when I applied periodic boundary condition in Fluent, an error just appeared before the first iteration calculating solution "divergence detected in AMG solver-pressure correction" . Although I tried to overcome this problem by reducing under relaxation factor and change some parameters in solution control, unfortunately I could not be able to solve it.
In the other hand when I want to make periodic region in inlet and outlet in mesh utility, but the coordinate system light yellow prevent to well define it.
I suggest maybe it is related to mesh quality and i have to make a finer mesh, do you have any suggestion about the mesh or solving this problem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I think it is not mesh quality related problem ... the convergence happens before the solution at all ...
It seems to be a problem in the boundary conditions ...
review ALL your boundary conditions CAREFULLY, and check that is physically consistent and acceptable.
Thanks for your reply.
I have checked and it seems there is not anything wrong in boundary condition. But when I tried to change to a finer mesh, the solution give me the same error after 2 iteration. Do you think this problem would be solved with a special mesh or you have any idea about it?
