Default Convergence...?

Hallo folks,

I'm having some doubts wether a simulation of mine is converged or not. In this, a laminar and stationary one, the continuity residuals (scaled) don't level out to the same value as the velocity residuals do.

The FLUENT user's guide acknowledges this as a possible situation, and their advice is to analyse the unscaled (normalized?) residuals instead.

The question is though, what am I supposed to read from these in order to conclude convergence?

I'd be grateful for your input

Keep it flowing ;-)

Does your continuity residual have a downward slope? Do they ever go up? Did you monitor any values to see if they are still changing?
