Time step continuity error
I have some clear questions? I wonder if someone can reply clearly too ;)
1-is time step continuity error really important in steady solvers including energy eq.?
2-what about unsteady ones that use piso?
3-if the answer is yes what should be the order of a-sum local, b-global c-cumulative continuity errors?
as u can see in "rhoPimpleFoam" tutorial case "angleduct"after 10 step it has:
sum local=0.000953371, global=0.000776714, cumulative=0.402763
I am also getting the same problem, here is some data. I really dont know how to solve this problem. I am using MRFSimpleFoam
Time = 31
time step continuity errors : sum local = 0.00425606, global = 0.000924716, cumulative = 0.0274701
Time = 32
time step continuity errors : sum local = 0.00357216, global = 0.000535369, cumulative = 0.0280054
Time = 33
time step continuity errors : sum local = 0.00360527, global = -0.000591305, cumulative = 0.0274141
Time = 34
time step continuity errors : sum local = 0.00362457, global = -0.000742113, cumulative = 0.026672
Time = 35
time step continuity errors : sum local = 0.00331502, global = -0.000725819, cumulative = 0.0259462
Time = 36
time step continuity errors : sum local = 0.00305899, global = 0.000333275, cumulative = 0.0262795
Time = 37
time step continuity errors : sum local = 0.0030778, global = 0.000586366, cumulative = 0.0268658
I have gone through the link which you have given to alish1984 and so many other post as well. Now I came to know, its is important as well it is something to do with pressure solver.
I changed relTol to 0 then there where no problem, but its taking lot of time to solve pressure (for one time step 10 to 15 min)
the above data is for relTol = 0.0005 in fvSolution --> pressure
adambarfi, if you are able to explain how to solve it, I will be grateful to you.
Thanks in advance,
