Hi everyone!

Im a newbie in Fluent and just taught myself using the tutorials. Im currently trying to determine the drag coefficient of a sphere and then i'll compare it with the values given in the literature but unfortunately, the values im getting are too high.

Any suggestions on how i can make the solution converge faster or which suitable turbulence model to use?

Thanks in advance
