His linear system is fine because it works in artificial compressibility case for the velocity componnents. Recall indeed that in artificial compressibility you don't have a linear system to solve for pressure since it is determined explicitly with an expression like P(i,j)_k+1= P(i,j)_k + c*div(U*). k is the indice loop to reach the steady state, c is a pseudo celerity of pressure waves. So if his SIMPLE does not work it should no be due to the linear system solver but rather due to its implementation which should have a bugg.

Hi Every one,
Thanks for all your support tonight i have seen results that i was hopping to see for about more then a week. and some how i have solve the Lid Driven Cavity by simple algorithm. I will post the code and procedure later for future reference. well there is still order of convergence problems and the understanding of relaxation factor which will be discuss later. Thanks Again. Regards Junaid

Hi Junaid,
Congratulations on your results!! Please may you also send the program on to me? I am curious as to how you implemented the boundary conditions for the vertical walls.

In case of SIMPLE algo enclosed with walls (lid driven cavity) your pressure equation shall be all neumann BC type problem, which should be singular. How did you solve that. Probably that is main issue for your convergence problems.

good topic!
I think artificial compressiblity method is more stable then SIMPLE with a bad linear solver in your case. Junaid, can you tell me your solver? Maybe you didn't use a suitable solver. Last edited by hilllike; August 21, 2012 at 03:59.

As I mentioned it previously there is no linear system to solve for pressure in the artificial compressibility method.

I don't know if his SIMPLE code is two phase flow model. If it is the linear solver may be the problem. I talked about the solver in SIMPLE code.

The problem with convergence is that when i let the program to iterate to go to more then about 8,000 the streamlines become distorted. As for pressure i solve it explicitly. as given below

When Junaid started he was speaking about a twophase flow situation. As this kind of problem has a numerous potential sources of problems, I advised him to first check his NavierStokes solver in an incompressible classical problem like lidd driven cavity where it is easy to validate the code. Then he saw that he had some problems in his SIMPLE implementation. Now Junaid claimed that his code was runing well, but we don't know really where was the problem and how he overcomed it. But for me his linear system solver couldn't be the reason why it failed because, with the artificial compressibility algorithm it worked fine. Thus it means that the linear systeme solver worked fine to compute the velocity componnents. But as Arjun aptly mentionned it, his solver could run well with dirichlet boundary conditions, but not with neumann BC as it is required for pressure correction in the SIMPLE algorithm. It could be indeed the reason..

First let me clear that it is not fine but it gives similar results what LDC should give.
Problems: the residual of pressure is not going beyond 0.00012. it take urfp =0.0001 if i use 0.001 it diverges. at least 1st problem should not be there. So my next step is to remove that problem Thanks for all ur help i still need it though

Dear Junaid  dividing by 2.0  bad programming style
Fw=A*(FP+FW)/2.0; Fe=A*(FE+FP)/2.0; Fs=A*(FSE+FSW)/2.0; Fn=A*(FNE+FNW)/2.0; cause usually multipication operation executed more rapidly than dividing

Gents,
I'm running into the same problem. Looking at the reactions in this thread help me a bit, but still not there. If I look at eq. 6.36, 6.37 and the equations below that for the multiplier (d). I still end up with a problem. If I take the central differencing scheme from Chap. 5 for the central coefficient (pag 136): ap=aw+ae+FeFw; (Assume A and rho = 1 and D=0) aw=Fw/2; ae=Fe/2; Fw=uw;Fe=ue; ap=uw/2 ue/2 + uw/4 ue/4; When uw approaches ue (which happens if all works well in a 1D situation) ap goes to 0 and the multiplier (d) approaches infinity. Resulting in all sorts of problems. I'm not quite sure how the URF solves this issue. Can someone help me figuring out where I'm going wrong?

I am also implementing versteeg's book, the pressure correction got similar problem. The velocity distribution profile, pattern are all ok, but the magnitude value, if compared with slit flow theoretical value
u(y)=(dp/dx)H^2/8Miu*(1(y/0.5H)^2) the max velocity is always 50% higher than the theoretical number, I believe the problem is at pressure correction and don't know how to solve it.

based on the book "an introduction to fluid dynamic ..." page 142, there are two main equation of momentum, after I guess P(star), then the v and u (start) are calculated, my question is about the a.u(star) and the coefficient of these equation. how they are defined ?!!!! could you explain briefly thank you
