Dear all,

I am newer to openfoam. I am running a case using rhosimplefoam. But after several iterations, errors happens.
Could you please tell me what's this error means?
It looks there are convergence problem.

Thanks in advance for you kindly help.

Best regards,
Aneshe.

Can you describe your case ?
Seems that your density explodes after a few iterations

Hi dear openfoamer,

I am new on openFoam and i am striving to make a subsonic flow around an airfoil work out with rhosimplefoam for the steady state case and hopefully later with rhoPisofoam for the transcient situation.

Having said that, I have exactly the same error as aneshe when using rhosimpleFoam. The running diverges after a couple of iterations. ( around 10 iteration )

I am at M = 0.5 using kepsilon turbulence model with the following features :

k = 1e-6 at both the inlet and the airfoil, the airfoil has the wall function = compressible::kqRWallFunction; and I assigned zerogradients elsewhere.

epsilon = 10 at both the inlet and the airfoil, the airfoil has the wall function = compressible::epsilonWallFunction with Cmu = 0.09; kappa = 0.41; E = 9.8;; and again i assigned zerogradient elsewhere.

I am a bit confused with mut and alphat files becauses i have no idea of the values and BC, I may assign.

I am quiet sure that the error comes from the BC choice because the mesh is ok.

Could someone please help me by recommanding for exemple BCs for my case.

Thanks in advance.

King Regards

Sofia

I have always failed in running rhoSimpleFoam. An alternative solution is to combine a local time step and a transient solver (SLTS + rhoPisoFoam for example).

thank you a lot for the reply.

I have read on another thread that (SLTS + rhoPisoFoam) is almost equivalent to rhoPimpleFoam.

do you think rhopimplefoam is appropriate ? if it is the case could you give me some recommandation to run the case properly.

Best Regards,

Sofia
