divergence transient study
Hi folks
I am performing a transient study and after 3000 iterations it takes place a divergence of residuals and so my results... Is is: Densitybased Energy On Laminar Flow Courant Number 0.1 (which works perfect) Implicit Second Order Transient condicionts: Time Step Size = 0.1 seg Number Steps = 5000 Max Iter/ Time Step = 50 Everything runs well and behaves as supposed but when it reaches 3000 iterations....diverges! Any advice?? is there anything else I can do?? Any suggestion?? Thanks in advance Regards

Plz Increase the maximum coarse level under multigrid panel (Advanced solution control) and lets see its works or not. 
I will do it, thanks

I set even 10000 in max coarse and it didn't change at all the results...

no, even 10 is sufficient. 10000 is not correct(unreal). u can play with multigrid option. (pre sweeps, post sweeps) . hopefully it will help.
http://https://www.sharcnet.ca/Software/Fluent12/html/ug/node794.htm r u using explicit method to time advancement? ( u set courant no 0.1.) try using implicit method and please post whether it is working or not. 
yes I am using implicit method (itīs default) , and it gives me the possibility to set courant number. I have tried from 0.1 to 5 (0.1 more precise but slower and 5 very coarse)
max coarse number didnīt affect my calculations nor residuals. I am going to surf this site and Iīll let you know! Thank you! 
Hello cfdhydraulic,
Plase don't make different thread for same problem as i think u have two or three threads for this problem. its confusing, right!!. 
yeah sorry some times I get confused with this forum... sorry about that! no happens again
:) 
Try reducing the time step size and simultaneous reduce the URF
