continuity convergence
do you know
how to fix convergence in continuity in modeling with vof (implicit)?

Decrease the time step and try it.
Change grid.

thanks for reply, i decreased the time step .. it still oscillates .. Unfortunatly i can not increase the mesh .. or cahnge..
what about URF,
does changing URF, (radically decreasing it) leads to wrong results (even if reaching to convergence and low residuals) ?

If "convergence" is achieved, it doesn't matter with which under-relaxation factor your simulation got there.

It will only take longer with low URF.
