no convergence with simplefoam
Everyone,i use simplefoam with standard kepsilon model to calculate the wind farm.when i type the command "simpleFoam",i get the following information:Create mesh for time = 0

Don't know if it may cause the issue, but, as the error says, you're missing the word "uniform" in your U conditions.
I would start by correcting that. 
Thanks for your reply.I think it is just a warning and it should not the reason for my problem.Because i can calculate well in the other case with the warning.

Hi,
if you are sure that your BCs are okay for U (you can check in paraview) I would try to stabilize the first iterations by using a cellLimited grad schemes and setting the relaxation factors for k and eps to 05. or 0.4 Best regards Stawrogin 
Thanks for your reply.I will ues your advice some seconds later.I hope it will works.Thanks again.

which solver for p,u,k,epsilon should i choose?

when i use cellLimited,there gives me the following error:> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR:
Grad scheme not specified Valid grad schemes are : 8 ( Gauss cellLimited cellMDLimited extendedLeastSquares faceLimited faceMDLimited fourth leastSquares ) file: /root/OpenFOAM/root2.1.0/run/tutorials/incompressible/simpleFoam/wf40/system/fvSchemes::gradSchemes::grad(U) at line 26.

Hi
I would try: gradSchemes { default cellLimited Gauss linear 1; } Stawrogin 
Thanks for your advice.I tryed following your advice,but it failed.can you give me more advice about others?

Hi,
When you used cellLimited Gauss linear 1; what do you mean it failed. Did it fail to even start or did it fail to converge like before? And also, is there a reason for using limited scheme for sngrad and laplacian terms? Kalyan 
it fail to converge like before.i make some changes,and it convergence.But i do not know the output is right or not.when i solve my problem,i will share my experience.

The following is my case files:https://dlweb.dropbox.com/u/69253136/system/fvSchemes

Hi,
your breakup is coused by the turbulence model! Code:
bounding k, min: 0 max: 50.8029155486 average: 1.44150802022 But you have a problem with your model: Code:
#6 Foam::incompressible::RASModels::kEpsilon::correct () in "/opt/openfoam210/platforms/linuxGccDPOpt/lib/libincompressibleRASModels.so" I would have a look at that be for trying to change the schemes! I think you `ve got a BCproblem. If you are not sure, save your first time step and have a look at the results. There you should see where your peaks are (k, espilon, p, U ...)  maybe there is a mesh problem at all? I would give you the advice to correct the "uniform" error. Well maybe its not a problem but you should set the files for OF correct. Tobi PS: Solver for k, eps.... PBiCG  have a look at the tutorials pitzDaily
