Hello,

one of my OpenFoam simulations finished before the simulation reached the Outlet.

What parts do I have to change to get the simulation run to the end?

My idea was to change the values in the "fvSolution" and "fvSchemes" but I don't know to which value I should modify the tolerance, relativTolerance? which solver should I choose, etc.
Can you give me any hint where I can get these information (the OpenFoam documentation seems a little bit "short") and if this is right way to solve my initial problem?


Kind regards,

Sören

You better read this first: How to give enough info to get help

Otherwise, we'll just be playing guessing games back and forth...
