chamber simulation problem
Hi everybody,

Im simulating the air flow into a chamber. the dynamic mesh was generated by using ESE chamber modeler in AVL Fire v2011. each time I want to start the simulation from the beginning (370 CA), around 435 CA I have a lot of problems with run. in fact turbulent energy and dissipation rate residuals do not behave well and have a oscillating shape. is there anyway to get rid of it?

Hi hamed,

Frankly, your explanation is too vague.
I guess your problem happens during intake stroke.

In this kind of case, the problem may be very specific to your model.

But in general, I can say you should check the followings.
- check the mesh quality for whole dynamic mesh
==> you can use the cell quality check during dummy run
- boundary condition
==> inlet/outlet condition
- timestep (delta CA and engine speed)
- min. and max. iterations
- relaxation factors

Thanks for response
I lowered the underrelaxtion factor of turbulent dissipation rate and the simulation resumed.
