Question about initialization
 
I am curious about solver setting (especially initializing). When I'm testing 2D problem(simple duct), I found a strange thing. When I fixed a initialized temperature value as 300K, my screen showed me a spottedly shpaed temp. contour.

At first, I doubted my monitor screen if it worked well but when I initialized other values it worked well only except 300K. I've tried many times but result was same.

Can anyone give me an advice?

A) Choose some points in the domain or lines B) Try to plot (plot-xy..) temp on these points or lines. C) I think, you didn't check during the contour displaying: the no of levels (put a value 50 or higher) D) Another student asked me the same problem, I think this problem is machine dependent.
