I have made a model of hydrofoil and i try to run Fluent. I use SIMPLE algorithm and my problem is that run right only with allmaras turbulent model. Why dont it run with other turbulent model?? Must i change something (example: under relaxation factors?? and how??) . I note that i have use boundary layer with first line 3e-06 lenght, in Gambit.

Can you be more specific as to what problems you have with the other models? Is it a problem with running or with the results you get?

As a side note, for external flows SA turbulence model works well as compared to other turbulence models.

yes, i will explain you. With other turbulent model i dont take a logical results. I don have issue for no conergence but for results.
For example i run my model with allmara and after 300-400 iterations with SIMPLE and default under relaxation factors, i take a good results (right distribution of pressures) and convergence. However, when i put k-w turbulent model, i dont take something logical (sparse eddies)...

Maybe, must i change the under relaxation factors for using k-w??

Is your flow encountering massive separation? If not the pressure should not be as sensitive to your turbulence model. Has the solution converged with the k-omega model?
