Hi Foamers
I want to simulate a circular cylinder. I used gambit for making mesh.
and I converted it without any problem. but during the solve, I get unusual value for Cd and Cl. I checked Aref and it is correct but I do not know what the problem is ?
plz help me

Hi dear Amir
two points:
1) after you import your mesh, use the command "check mesh" and look the result, is it fine?
2) u may use non hexahedral mesh, so maybe you need to use different schemes in your fvSchemes, so try different schemes in ur fvSchemes

3) for non-orthogonal you can increase the correct number in fvSolution

maybe it helps

Dear nima
I have applied your suggestion but I don`t get sutiable answer
and it has still irregular Cd and Cl please check my test case (click on it) if you can?
tnx

hi i look at your case.
first: it seems everything is fine, did you check whether your simulation is converging or not?
second: Are you sure the calculation of Cd is right?
if answer to both aforementioned questions are yes

then i suggest first turn of the turbulence and check whether it returns reasonable result for laminar case or not

Hi Nima
my case is laminar not turb.
tanx it seems that the value of residuals cannot control the loops. and after 1 iteration the pimple loop for Uy exited. I have changed my loop corrector in Fvsolution and it seems more normal value.

Hi
your simulation may be done in low velocity and it may be fall in low Reynolds number, and it is a laminar case! but i asked you to change the turbulence in the constant folder into laminar to omit all turbulence calculation in your case!

However im glad you reach a reasonable result

Dear Nima
I had set laminar at first. the files are for next steps.
but it is running and it still looks good
tnx
