kEpsilon divergence3 Attachment(s)
hi dear all,
i am analyzing the turbulent flow over a multi element airfoil, i use kEpsilon as my turbulent model, i attach another setting except the polyMesh file that have large volume in the following. i want to know why this setting give me a huge "cd and cl" value and become diverge at last???
