Hi everyone,
Thank you very much for your support so for. I am running MRFSimpleFoam. My problem getting diverged.

I tried many different ways playing around fvSolution 0/U and 0/P, but I am not at all getting the solution converged.

Even I have changed the mesh as well, but still i am getting the same problem.

Fomers please help me to solve this problem.
I am giving the some information here, please have a look and help me to solve this problem.

the epsilon keep on increasing, how can i fix this problem.


Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Shvakumar,

i) use upwind schemes for k and epsilon
ii) initialize k and epsilon proper (f.i. deriving i.c./b.c. from intensity/length scale assumptions)assumptions)
iii) check you schemes and change maybe.
f.i. from linear to limitedLinear.

Best
Th.
