How do I use the axisymmetric model?

Dear all: Recently, I am trying to use the aximsymmetric model to solve an unsteady state problem but I just fail. The console window told me that the xmomentum diverge as soon as I started the program. I even tried to initalize the radial velocity with a nonzero number but got the same result. Did I do anything wrong?

Hi
One of the reasons is: Did u make sure that ur axis of symmetry is 'XAxis' ? and, there should not be any cells below the xaxis, ?? Chendhil.

mmm, I set the xaxis as the radial axis and yaxis is the axis of symmetry. Is it necessary to set the yaxis as symmetry axis? Besides, do you mean that I have to establish the model geometry in the positive coordinate value?

the xaxis must be the axis of symmetry and the y axis must be the radial axis

Thank you very much. It could work well now.

hi,i have a question about axisymmetric model,there are some options in boundry pannel to assign velocity in both axisymmetric and axisymmetric swirl model,what is difference btw those?

Axisymmetric model is used when the geometry is axisymmetric (for example, flow through a pipe, where you can model just a 2D halfsection of the pipe). Here, there is no flow in the zaxis.
In axisymmetric swirl, there is swirling flow in the zaxis (normal to the geometry plane). For example, liquid swirling in a circular vessel.

if xaxis is at 0,0,0 location then turing that boundary to symmetry gives warning msg and by translating axis it produces wrong results. can you tell me in that case what should I do?
