Compressible Fluid Flow in COMSOL Multiphysics
I am trying to figure out how to do compressible fluid flow with turbulence in COMSOL to determine the lift and drag coefficients for airfoils. I am able to do so for laminar incompressible flow, but of course these are not the correct results.
So far, I have used the Chem Engineering - Non-Isothermal Flow and Convection and Conduction application modes. The Non-Isothermal Flow mode is using the k-e Turbulence Model.
The non-default subdomain settings for the Non-Isothermal Flow are as follows: a) Dynamic Viscosity is 1.52*10^-5 kg/ms b) Initial Pressure is 23842 Pa c) Streamline diffusion off
The non-default boundary settings for the Non-Isothermal Flow are as follows: a) An inlet, an outlet, and the rest are set to the default logarithmic function wall. b) Non-linear weak constraints are on
For the Convection and Conduction: a) All sides are set to Thermal Insulator b) Thermal conductivity, density, heat capacity are set to certain values. c) Heat source is set to Q = p_time+u*px+v*py d) Temperature is initiated
First off, when I try to solve it it returns with the error "Failed to find a solution:
The relative residual (1.3e-006) is greater than the relative tolerance.
Returned solution has not converged."
What does that mean and how can I fix it?
And finally, the temperature is constant around the cylinder/airfoil, however the temperature and velocity fields are not. Why is this? Shouldn't the temperature be changing?
Thanks for any help you can provide!
