 January 19, 2004, 18:45 How to solve Poisson equation in CFX 4? #1 windhair Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, all I want to solve a semi-Poisson equation for a user scalar, it is in the form: D^2(PHI)/DX^2 + D^2(PHI)/DY^2 = f(PHI). Because the right term is a function of scalar PHI, it may cause some converge problem as I think, how to make this works in CFX 4.4 by command file or by user subroutine? aks for help. Thanks

Turn off convection (NO CONVECTION under the diffusion scheme) and set your source coeffient in the SP term which will be multiplied by PHI by the solver. This has been done to solve for electric fields. Jeff

Evaluate everything else (including functions of PHI) and assign it to S_U. The more you can put into S_P the better (see documentation on linearization of sources). Jeff
