Manual limiter of velocity doesn't work

Hi to everyone guys!
I'm experiencing this problem and I really don' t know what to do: I'm running with the solver adjointShapeOptimizationFoam, but now I'm trying to modify it a little, since sometimes the equations diverge. What I want to do is to use a manual limiter, that limits the value of the velocity in each cell if it raises too much, so I've inserted these lines at the bottom of the solver: forAll(Ua,cellI) { Ua[cellI].component(0)=min(Ua[cellI].component(0), 200); Ua[cellI].component(1)=min(Ua[cellI].component(1), 200); Ua[cellI].component(2)=min(Ua[cellI].component(2), 200); } forAll(Ua,cellJ) { Ua[cellJ].component(0)=max(Ua[cellJ].component(0), 200); Ua[cellJ].component(1)=max(Ua[cellJ].component(1), 200); Ua[cellJ].component(2)=max(Ua[cellJ].component(2), 200); } I'm expecting that these lines behave like a threshold value for each component of the velocity at each iteration, but I've run a simulation and I discovered that the values of the velocity were bigger than the range [200:200]. Maybe the lines I've added are wrong? Any help is really appreciated. Thanks in advance Simone P.s. I'm running in parallel, but I hope this is not a problem for the code I've added.

You will need to limit the values on the patches also (all faces on patches)
forAll(U.boundaryField(),patchI) { forAll(U.boundaryField()[patchI],faceI) { U.boundaryField()[patchI][faceI].component(0)=some value; } } Also your solver might adjust U values not only after solving momentum equation. So make sure that your are limiting after each calculation step of U

Thank you Omkar! The problem was exactly on the patches, since I had forgotten to loop on them. By adding your lines now it seems to work perfectly.

hi Simone
I think limiting velocity can also resolve my problem. Could you send me your modified solver? Thanks.

can use velocity limiters only on a patch not entire the domain?

hi Omkar
Could you send me the code with added expressions for rhoPimpleFoam?

My code consists of combination of above two codes.
Like I said, it did not work for me so I erased that code. The codes in this forum clearly explain how to limit velocity in the domain and the patches

Hi immortality!
With respect to the adjointShapeOptimizationFoam solver, you should put the " two" limiter just above the lines Quote:
If you want to "limit" only the patches you should insert only the lines that doubtsincfd suggested. If, instead, you asked to limit only one specific patch you can use something like this: Quote:

In my opinion after
Code:
if (pimple.turbCorr()) { turbulence>correct(); }

thank you dear Simone for your help
so I added it.is it correct?why you have wrote patchName2 in findPatchID? I put U[cellI] instead of Ua[cellI] due to use in rhoPimpleFoam does it have any problem? I want not to let U becomes higher than sound speed(flow should be subsonic) will it be true that I write sqrt(1.4*287.14*T[cellI]) instead of 500 I have put now? I want to be certain to compile the modified solver. thanks again. Code:
word patchName = "left"; label patchID = mesh.boundary().findPatchID(patchName); forAll(U.boundaryField()[patchID],faceI) { U.boundaryField()[patchID][faceI].component(0)=min(U[cellI].component(0), 500); }

I used it for the patch.but velocity in cells near the inflow boundary are supersonic.
where I add the expressions to limit velocity on top of domain? and what do you mean from cellI and cellJ in this expressions: forAll(Ua,cellI) { Ua[cellI].component(0)=min(Ua[cellI].component(0), 200); Ua[cellI].component(1)=min(Ua[cellI].component(1), 200); Ua[cellI].component(2)=min(Ua[cellI].component(2), 200); } forAll(Ua,cellJ) { Ua[cellJ].component(0)=max(Ua[cellJ].component(0), 200); Ua[cellJ].component(1)=max(Ua[cellJ].component(1), 200); Ua[cellJ].component(2)=max(Ua[cellJ].component(2), 200); }

You have to put those line before the ones to limit the boundary. cellI and cellJ are two (unuseful) different counters. You can use the same for both cycles.

Actually I don't know if OF will allow you such a statement:
Code:
U[cellI].component(0)= min(U[cellI].component(0), sqrt(1.4*287.14*T.boundaryField()[patchID][faceI])30); I don't know if you can use something like this: Code:
U[cellI].component(0)= min(U[cellI].component(0), sqrt(1.4*287.14*T.[cellI])30); Hope this help.
