Help understanding my solution
1 Attachment(s)
Hey all,

New user here. Trying to make sense of some results...
(3d, dp, pbns, vof, lam, transient)
The basic setup is that I am modeling a water droplet entering through the wall of a cylinder that has air moving down it. (See "artist's" rendering, below)


Air Flow --->
(water drop)

I've attached an image of the chart of residuals I get when running my sim.

Can someone explain why I am having these peaks in the chart? Does this imply something about convergence or divergence of the solution? Thanks,
