Default Residual Problem -Mass Imbalance
Posts: n/a
Hello, Guys,

Do you know how to solve the problem influenced by Mass Imbalance? This Mass imbalance is influenced by the farfield-pressure and I set the farfield Mac Number=0, gauge pressure=0,temp=300K.

My residuals of the calculation is too high so that it will crash very fast. And the residual contour showed me that Mass Imbalance is the crucial reason for that. Any one have ideas?
