Hi!
I'm currently trying to model an ejector, but it seems that my results doesn't convergence, and I have not idea why.
My basic parameters are:
Solver=density based
Viscous=k-epsilon
I have two inlets: gas pressure inlet (T=1500K;P=5000000Pa)
air pressure inlet (T=300k; P=101325Pa)
If someone has any idea to help me ....
Thanks

I'm managed to convergence my problem, but without using the temperature data (1500K).
Now I'm trying to insert it in my problem, but it seems that fluent ignores my temperature's data. I'm using an ideal gas to modelize my compressible flow.
I mean I managed to solve the problem with the energy's equation disabled, and when I turn it on to consider the temperature the solution diverges (even if I try to decrease my UFR)
Someone knows where it can come from?

Hi!
I managed to solve my problem, but now I noticed that a shock wave occurs in the diverging part of my ejector.
I probably should modify my geometry but I don't know how?
Someone has ideas to avoid this phenomenon?
Thanks

bro i am working on the same problem, i need a flow ckoking at the throat of my ejector but couldn't figure out how to interpret the pressure ratio in the fluent. and also i am using k-omega model and a 3d grid . the primary nozzle is fixed with a movable spindle to induce shock but i am not getting it. in this i took
species transport, eddy dissipation, volumetric.........always divergence in AMG SOLVER, temperature, pressure correction , omega......please help me.....i'll be waiting for your early reply becoz it's very much

urgent.....urgent............

Hello Francois,

I'm working with the same ejector problem as you. Still, I can't get the simulation to converge. Can you please help me with the initial settings? It would be better if can take a look on your settings. You can email me at markc_tano@yahoo.com .. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
