Problem with SimpleFoam for a solution around an OneraM6 wing
 
Hello, I'm trying to find the solution, with simpleFoam, around a wing.

I did the mesh with GMSH, I checked it and it's ok!

When I run simpleFoam, after some time I have this error:

Is it an error from the numerical scheme? I see that there are a large value for bounding epsilon and k. Is here the problem?

Thanks for the replies.

When I turn off turbulence in RAS Properties, It goes ok and the time step continuity errors has no large value. The solution, seen by Paraview, seems ok. How can I correct the problem with epsilon and K.

Thanks.
Best regards.

would you please send your Mesh file and your case file to yzf1215@gmail.com? I'm having a similar problem like you.

gara1988 November 13, 2012 06:47

Hello, I solved the problem. It was in the turbulence model. I imposed Spalart-Allmras or Realizable K-epsilon and the solution now doesn't diverge!
