Hi,
I have problems of an increasing density. Even after the third time step (deltat=1) Min/max rho = 0,38 / 2,82. The fluid is air. So I would expect something around 0,6 I think the boundary conditions are set wrong. But I have made a setup identic to an other case where the density doesn't increase. Does someone have a clue which boundary conditions are prone to increase density? Best Regards, tH3f0rC3

message. Maybe someone of you knows why the temperature goes down wo fast and why the density goes to 0.1 and to 3.36. Maybe there is a typical error which has this for result. Best Regards, tH3f0rC3

I'm using the chtMultiRegionSimpleFoamSolver.
heat transfer from hot air to two solids is solved in this case. The flow is turbulent. I will post the case files on Monday. Best Regards, tH3f0rC3

The whole case is too large.
I uploaded the 0files. There must be the mistake. Maybe it has to do something with the velocity at the Outlet! I don't really know the velocity at the outlet. So how do I have to set up the boundary condition for unknown velocity at the outlet? Remember, the temperature and the density are solved strange. I have a new logfile of a test run of the case: Code:
