Timestep control

possibly your time step is too large. Especially if you use explicit time treatment or implicit time stepping without under relaxation, high CFL numbers (CFL>1) cause numerical instability.
In case you use your own program and have access to the source code, consider adaptive timestep control.

my parameters are fine. i changed the URF's and it is workin but i had to increase the inner least it is converging even if itll be longer
by the way im using implicit scheme with URF's
