Displaying residuals
Hi All,

I was wondering is it possible to show all residuals rather than the maximum or is it possible to determine which residual is the maximum one?

Yup. On Analyze tab (Probe, 2-D, 3-D or Text Output) select 'Restart' as the data source and then 'Pressure Iteration Residual'. It will be most useful in 2-D, probably, since in 3-D you'll only see the values for the iso-surface and not the values for cells internal to the flow.

You can do a 2D or 3D plot of "diagnostics - pressure iteration residual". I'd recommend 2D with "no contour smoothing".
