 October 23, 2012, 13:07 epsilon and K blowing up. #1 Senior Member   sivakumar selvaraju Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: Cape Town - South Africa Posts: 186 Rep Power: 9 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.

Thanks in advance for your help. sivakumar
