Convergence in ANSYS Fluent

Posted December 13, 2013 at 05:00 by Centurion2011

At convergence, the following should be satisfied:
  • All discrete conservation equations (momentum, energy, etc.) are obeyed in all cells to a specified tolerance OR the solution no longer changes with subsequent iterations.
  • Overall mass, momentum, energy, and scalar balances are achieved.
  • Monitoring convergence using residual history:
  • Generally, a decrease in residuals by three orders of magnitude indicates at least qualitative convergence. At this point, the major flow features should be
