osha is on a distinguished road
I am simulating separation of 2 different phases of fluid. I am also modelling the coalescence and breakup of bubbles using PBM.

Coalescence and breakup are inherently unsteady phenomenon and I was looking at PBM equations to make sense of coalescence and breakup when treated as steady state.

Most of my simulations in steady state eulerian eulerian multiphase problem with discrete PBM model end up with divergence. But I have been able to stablize the simulation for time being by playing with relaxation factors. The residuals and fluctuations indicates that I am no where close to convergence.

However, I am seeking your opinion and guidance to understand if such multiphase problems with PBM can be treated as steady state?

If yes, how does the results obtained, physically make sense?

Thank you.

hi,osha.I meet the same question:The residuals cannot go down with Iteration in steady simulation? that is to say, convergence is difficult.can you solve the problem?

any help will be appreciated.thank you
