c120613 is on a distinguished road
Dear all,

I'm working to simulate a fan on CFX and after the numerical simulation I saw that the residual level doesn't go down below E-3, E-4. Then I want to know which parameter I can play on, in order to achieve a residual level around E-5, E-6.

Kind regards

Domenico di Cugno

if you are simulating a steady run, you can reduce the timestep value.

if you are simulating a unsteady run, you have two possibilities:

a) reduce the dt

b) increase the number of the sub-iterations at every timestep
