Hi,
i m new here .. nd i m nt familiar with ANSYS flotran.. so can any one help me in doing a turbine blade analysis... i have the same divergent solution error each time ... the solution is not converging
i already use the MIR stability conditions...
i m not sure about the reference conditions will any body explain me how to specify them...
the temperature at the inlet is 900 K and pressure is 1.96 bar.

kindly some one help me ..
thanks in advance for any response......

hi kkjj... i don tink der r many in dis forum who r interested in Flotran... i had a prob wit flotran too,but never got a reply.Since then i migrated to fluent.anyways it has almost become a thing of the past,since fluent,CFX and other commercial softs rule the roost.Even Ansys has put flotran in the backburner.any use of flotran today remains only to train new students of CFD,since it has all the components(prepro,solver and post) in the same interface.shift to some other popular code then u can find loads of help i guess....

Are you familiar with the concept of "artificial viscosity", this is how flotran stabilizes the solution. Simply, you start your iterations with a very high value (compared to the real coefficient) and reduce it as the solution proceeds, you need to search the online help system for a flow through a nozzle example, read it to get an idea of how this procedure is used. you need to experiment a little bit say you start with, for instance 1000 times the viscosity for 50 iterations, continue with less viscosity another 50 iterations reduce the viscosity and etc
Just remember to watch the residuals and how they oscillate until you reach a stable solution.
Of course, you need to remember, that was a long time ago and I am just using my memory
good luck

Thanks ahmed for ur reply... i m using artificial viscosity... but kindly explain me how to use that may be i m using in a wrong way....

as has been mentioned before, Flotran is old software and I am just trying to refresh my memory, perhaps you would get better response if you post your query on the right forum, the ansys forum
good luck
