Residual Output
Hello professionals,

I have a question.

I simulate with AcuSolve a train in a wind tunnel.

When I run the calculation, the residual ratio from pressure descends down to 1*10^-6, from velocity 1*10^-5, but from the eddy viscosity I get only residual values from 0,01-0.005. (Spalart-Allmars)

Now I want to show in which area the calculation has a problem.

I turned on to save all 10 calculation steps (Steady) the residuals from every node.
When Im looking in postprocessor, the residuals from pressure have a range from +50000 <-> -50000.
I dont undertsand this. And thats not only one area, is all over the model in my Result. (pressure, velocity and eddy viscosity)

Could you post your .inp and .Log file?
This would help in figuring out the issue.
