simulation of wall with holes
I am trying to simulate wind blowing on a flat wall. 1.6m height and 4m length. (50mm thick).
Following several tutorials I could generate a mesh and insert a inflation layer on the surface of the wall. When I run a simulation the chart of convergence showed that RMS Residual Error Values have reduced to less than e-04 that I understand is good.
Then, I change the wall geometry with a wall with same size but including a vertical gaps producing a 20% of porosity in the wall.
I use the same parameters to produce the mesh and the inflation, but when I run the simulation the convergence remains between e-03 and e-04.
What do you think I can change or improve to results? Why is different when the surface of the geometry has holes?

Thanks. I didn't know about this FAQ
