Problem in solvingthis error tells the maximum number of iterations the solver is reached probably in e equation solving.why this is occuring?

Hi
I am also having the same problem. Did you find the cause of its occurrence ? Thanks Anant |

hi dear Anant.I did some changes in fvSchemes and fvSolutions.using CrankNicholson .5;and div(phi,U) Gauss upwind; is better than Euler and linear respectively.
a very important thing is boundary conditions and initial conditions.I changed initial condition and increased it because it had made a supersonic flow at inlet but it must be subsonic in my problem. and also try another solver and change maxIter for e in specieThermo.c (I think it was there) can lead to more stability. whats the problem you want to model?comp or incomp? |

Dear Ehsan
Thanks a lot for your help. I tweaked the initial conditions and it's working now. I am solving compressible flow between rotating cylinders using rhoCentralFoam. Regards Anant |

Dear Anant
Im working with rhoCentralFoam and rhoPimpleFoam. Im interested in the problem you are working on.could you send me your case please? Thanks. |
