 October 18, 2015, 18:50 Fluide Flow aroud a cylinder #1 New Member   Badr badro Join Date: Oct 2015 Posts: 6 Rep Power: 2 Dear all, Hello I want realise a 2D simulation of a turbulent flow of a fluide, wind fo example around a cylinder. So the wind flow is turbulent. The turbulence model chosen that i think is the best, is the Shear Stress Transport (SST) Reynolds-averaged NaviereStokes (RANS) model. * the dimensions are : - The solution domain => L=90 m ; H= 30 m - the Cylindre has a diameter of D= 10 m ; and it is situated in midle of the domain I impose 17 m/s velocity in the inlet section. The problem is that I have no convergence at least, I give a big number of iterations (sometimes more than 10 000 iteration ) without that the programme telling me the convergence. So - How much time can this kind of simulation take to achieve convergence ? - Should I give more and more iteration in order to achieve convergence ? - Can take results and consider them as meaning results without having convergence ? your help please ! zhaomu67 likes this.

I dont understand What you mean by detecting some physical quantity of a point，and checking whether the physical quantity is steady?

You can monitor the mass flow of inlet and the mass flow of outlet by Monitor.
I can't upload the pictrue that I grab from fluent.The conpare them in Report.
You can see whether the mass flow is equal.The physical quantities mean velocity,temperature and so on.You can do the same things as massflow.If the physical quantity is steady of a point,You can think the result is converage.
