U can try following things in order (1) decrease relevant URFs. (2) use PISO/simplec velocity pressure coupling (3) use second order upwind scheme for pressure (4) refine ur geometry ---

a) making it fine

b) check for skewness in ur geometry, on a conservative side no cells should have skewness>0.9

bye ashish
