pipe with buoyantFoam buoyancy, boundary conditions

Dear all,

I try to simulate a pipe flow axis-symmetric. The mesh was generated in Gambit (one cell thick) and converted with fluentMeshToFoam and scaled. After it was made axis-symmetric with the application makeAxialMesh. When running with icoFoam there are no solving problems, but I want to use a heated wall with buoyancy effects, the acceleration is parallel to the pipe. And there I get no solution...

The boundary layers are:

* inlet Eingang
* outlet Ausgang
* wedge (frontAndBack)
* wall (oben)
* axis

The Fluid is air and I try to solve without implementation of turbulence modelling.

But what kind of boundary conditions are neccessary so solve. I read a lot in the forum and tested...
