hallo everyone!!
from last one month i have started working on fluent and my goal is to get convergence of propeller blade velocity.I have tried by changing controls from solver also but my solution is almost remain constant after 100 iterations and its not getting converged .so i need your help.so let me know how should i proceed now??

Thanks & Regards,
Vishal

Hello there
If there is no problem concerning the geometry (model and mesh quality) and boundary conditions, then you need to increase the velocity gradually. For instance, if you want to run a impeller with 200 rpm, then first start with 30 rpm and increase it 20 rpm step by step and in each step, try to get a converged solution. Be careful to apply right turbulence model as well.
Good luck

vasava will become famous soon enough
Some questions:
1. What approach are you using? Moving frame of reference, dynamic mesh or something else?
2. Is your simulations steady-state or transient?
3. What makes you say 'my solution is almost remain constant after 100 iterations and its not getting converged'? Are you observing a particular quantity or Convergence graph?

Few pictures from your mesh and results would also help us help you.

Hallo Vasava,
Description of My task: I am working on propeller blades of helicopters and i have to get convergence of three types of blade inlet velocity and my approach is Absolute reference frame and my simulation is for steady state condition. and velocity and mass flowrate i set same in all three blades ,in one old wood blade i got convergence and in one blade after trying many times the convergence not coming near to criteria but its going up and up and in one blade convergence remain almost constant after 100 iterations ..My main goal is to get convergent solution of inlet velocity of all blades .i have checked mesh and everything and my supervisor also checked .I don't know how to take photo so tell me how can i click and send .

Thank you

Best regards,
vishal
