Convergence in Fluent at small (order 1) Re
 
Hi,

We are calculating laminar flows at small (about 1) Reynolds numbers, and the convergence in Fluent is very slow; often iterations diverge. In fact, solving NSE with small Re is much easier but Fluent, obviously, is tuned to more common high-Re flows. Does anyone know a way around this?

Thanks in advance

Sergei
