Hi,
I am solving the flow though a channel opened on a piston head which is moving inside a cylinder. Here, I am using layering type dynamic mesh. I can see the mesh moving without any problem in Fluent; however, when I were to iterate the solution it gives error as "Error: divergence detected in AMG solver: pressure correction
Error Object: ()"
When I work with ideal gas there is no problem. But when I am to work with a fluid, such a problem occurs. Can anyone advice me anything with that?
Thank you all. I am waiting from you.

I think it is because of Continuity. When I use ideal gas as a fluid, Fluent goes on calculations without an error. However, when I chose a fluid, a kind of incompressible fluid, the continuity residual diverges. Would it be because of this?If so, how can I overcome this problem?

Hi

I want to solve a similar problem and had troubles. Did you solve your issue, how?

I want to solve the fluid flow in a non circular culinder-piston configuration.
Originally, I would like to solve it 3D but let's discuss the 2D problem first. The cylinder walls have some curvature, for example each wall can be viewed as a 1/4 of a circle. The piston moves inside this curvilinear cylinder. My question is what is the best way to do it and how should I introduce the moving wall for the piston? Is there a good online help or a tutorial?

P.s.1 I think I have to use a mesh layering but I am not sure how I should account for the motion of the piston. I know Fluent has a pre-set situation for conventional cylinder piston problem in mesh layering but how can I expand it to non circular culinder-piston.

P.s.2 Do I have to use a moving wall? If yes do I have to write a UDF for it and in that case can I still use the mesh layering or I do I need re-meshing then?

Thanks in Advance

Sina

Thank you all. I am waiting from you.
I would like to have my model by having 'layering' scheme of dynamic mesh. Unfortunately, I am totally new in dynamic mesh and I might need your help in guiding me to have good dynamic mesh modeling which might similar with your case. My model is shown as the attachment. May I have your advise on how to do that. Pls help me. Thanks a lot.

I know it's an old post but I have a question. What motion function do you use??
Do you use In-cylinder piston motion function??
