Hi all,


Recently, I have been studying the unsteady simulation of pumps by using OpenFOAM. Then, I try to simulate the Timisoara swirl generator case with transientSimpleDyMFoam solver firstly. The solver and case are both downloaded from the webpage: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Sig_Turbomachinery_/_Timisoara_Swirl_Generator


But, the case was diverged after several steps, and the log file is in the attached files. I don't know why it was diverged though I haven't changed anything? Would someone like to help me? I will appreciate it!




here is the setup of fvSolution and controdict:


fvSolution file:

p PCG
{

};

maxIter 180;
};

{

{ type DILU;}

{ type DILU; }

minIter 1;
maxIter 4;

};

};
}

}

You may want to switch off the relative tolerances in the pressure solver.

Hi Sandeep,

What do you mean about switch off the relative tolerances in the pressure solver. Sorry, I can't understand. Could I have some more details, please. And I just sent an email to you. Hoping for your reply. Thank you very much!

Regard,

Yun Ren

Sorry for being cryptic. Set relTol to 0.0 for pressure in fvSolution.
