Default mass convergency problem

Dear all,

I'm running simulations for rotor 37 but I have the convergence problem in particular related with the mass equations RMS. The other residuals seem okay.

Do you have an idea which parameter I have to vary in order to have the convergency.

The simulations are run in steady conditions where the blade turns at -1800 RPM and the shroud turns at +1800 RPM. The value of the mass flow is equal around 0,57 kg/sec per passage.

Please let me know how I can fix this problem and if you need some other numerical details let me know as well.

Kind regards

Have you read in the documentation about obtaining convergence? Also have a look at the FAQ in this forum (
