 November 10, 2004, 19:38 Re: Different Under Relaxation Factors #7 ap Guest   Posts: n/a If you use too small under-relaxation factors you risk to obtain false convergence. This means that in unsteady calculations, you have a sort of lag between the real flow conditions at a time and the predicted flow condition. In steady calculations, false convergence means you don't reach the solution. Under relaxation factors have to be reduced with care, keeping in mind that you just have to reduce them in order to obtain a stable solution. Hi ap
