 June 19, 2002, 07:41 SIMPLE algorithm #1 jika Guest   Posts: n/a Hello Sirs, I am a beginner of cfd. I am trying to solve steady, incompressible, laminar, 2D driven-cavity flow problem using SIMPLE algorithm. As I have to use pressure relaxation factor of 0.001 to get a converged solution at Reynolds Number = 100 and as I am not getting convergence for Reynolds number > 200 at this pressure relaxation factor also, I want to ask the following questions - 1)In momentum equations, (a_P) = (summation of a_nb) + (flux difference over the cv) this relation maynot give a diagonally dominant matrix when the solution is not converged. So I am using (a_P) = (summation of a_nb) + MAX[0,(flux difference over the cv)] in my program. Is it correct? 2)How to use time-stepping in this problem? How to deal with the term (rho_p^o - rho_p).Delta V / Delta t which arises in the transient pressure correction equation? My 100 Re result is matching very well with benchmark solution. I have tested different grid sizes (uniform) from 10x10 to 100x100. I am using upwind scheme for covective terms. I have read the previous discussions on SIMPLE algorithm here. I have gone through the books by Peric, Patankar, Malalasekera. But still I am not clear on these points. Where I may be wrong? Please help me. Thanking you in anticipation. jika
