Axisymmetric Vof
In 2dd problem Axisymmetric Vof In

- Multhiphase Model 2 components - visosus model k-epsilon 2 eqn standard - standard wall functions

the solver that it doesn't converge the iter continuity

- me from the following mistake:

Error: Internal error at line 743 in file 'amgif.c'. divergence detected in AMG solver Error Object: ()

turbulent viscosity limited to viscosity ratio of 1.000000e+05 in 132 cells.

Thanks for your attention. Bey well,

Re: Axisymmetric Vof
Hallo What VOF scheme did you use? It should not have any problem to get converged solution. Start with a smaller time step if you do time dependent simulations.

Thank You

Re: Axisymmetric Vof
I don't see any reason why it doesn't work.

Re: Axisymmetric Vof
Does it converge in 10 iterations? Whats the convergent criteria?

Re: Axisymmetric Vof
They are the Iteration max for step, but doesn't converge also with Max Iter = 50.

Could question but perhaps depend to type of mesh ?

Thank you

Re: Axisymmetric Vof
I am pretty sure that its the mesh quality. I have been using VOF with geo for more than 2 years now, I didn't have any major difficulties.

Re: Axisymmetric Vof
Does it know pointing to me a few books that treat any problem of Mesh in turbulent regime? Thank you.
