Hii,

After I get convergence using SimpleFoam, and I have continuity errors of the order of 1e-10, as I check the value of div(phi) in all the cells, I find them to be of the order of 1e-3. But ideally they should be very small ensuring mass flux balance in each cell. Can someone please let me know the reason for this inconsistency.

Thanks

It could be the discretization schemes you are using...
