pressure eq. "converges" after few time steps

Posted December 1, 2017 at 06:05 by kindle

Have a thread about simplefoam convergence.

This will no improve the initial convergence, since the solver will stop when the relTol is 0.05. thus it will not run until 1E-12 but stop at 0.05. And pressure equation will be not converged smoothly, I guess. What are your experience on the subject? What do you mean with not efficient?

Somewhere else it has been suggested to use pressure

Controlling y+ values with snappyHexMesh?

This can be useful y+ control !

In a nutshell, you mesh your volume with a suitable algorithm (tets or hexa i,j,k) and viscous layers are added as an "additional hypothesis" in the 3D algorithm settings. In there, you have the option of excluding some faces in your geometry, like inlet, outlet, but also areas where you don't care as much about flow modeling like in some multiphase flow computations.

Free YouTube Lessons for Applied CFD in Aerodynamics using ANSYS and OpenFOAM

Posted November 9, 2017 at 11:05 by shereez234

I have decided to share in this Group a series of video Lessons I am making for a CFD course in Computational Aerodynamics at De Montfort University, Leicester, UK. The link for the play list is provided below: sjzLYtBS-

6 Lessons already exists, and with in the next few months (weekly) new videos will be uploaded.
It will consist of
* Geometry Handling Techniques
* Structured...

write a field in OpenFOAM

Posted October 30, 2017 at 04:01 by kindle

This is a good thread on writing an object

but its doesn't work.
First of all I define a ScalarField in my Header,

volScalarField hybrid_;

for the next step I edit the code file with a new Object

I want to use the 'turbulentIn

BC need to pay atttention

Ok I know it is anyway no real turbulent inlet because there is no turbulence strcuture etc.

Additionally, I was wondering what I have to set for k and epsilon at this turbulent boundary
