Default convergence criterion
Posts: n/a
I am modelling the laminar flow in the curved duct of square cross section. My problem is when I use the low Dean number equal 150, I have two counters rotating secondary vortices. Or the critical Dean number in my geometry is 150 since the literature(ie at Dn=150, logically I found four counters rotating secondary vortices) Please give me some help, Thank you.
