Using pimpleFoam to model pulsatile flow in a micro channel
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hi,

I have been trying to use the pimpleFoam solver to solver pulsatile flow moving through a rectangular micro channel with flow in the x direction.

The viscosity being used is the kinematic viscosity of 2.3e-006 m^2/s with the dimensions of the channel to maintain a Re of around 5.2.

The flow is incompressible and transient (unsteady).

The pressure solver appears to max out at 1000 iterations, any suggestions as to what may cause this?

Thank you in advance
:)
