 February 25, 2014, 04:06 residual of Continuity equation #1 New Member   mohamad Join Date: Oct 2013 Posts: 15 Rep Power: 5 Hi everybody I simulate the multiphase flow (resin and air) in blade (my problem) In run of Fluent,residual of Continuity equation is (approximately) constant. I dont know this reason(in my run no reverse flow,no error and resin is infusion correctly) please help

Default is 0.75 and in my case (simple rtm simulation in flat plate) reducing it to 0.55 made the simulation converge. With kind regards, Jeroen

Have you any paper in about viscous resistance of glass fiber? Thank you for your attention

Below there ar a few papers about rtm and permeability of fibers: http://elib.uni-stuttgart.de/opus/vo...ORGE_PRINT.pdf http://web.mit.edu/andrew3/Public/Pa...nt_Ferland.pdf http://www.cheric.org/PDF/KARJ/KR18/KR18-4-0217.pdf With kind regards, Jeroen
