Divergence detected in AMG solver
2 Attachment(s)
Hi everyone,
I'm trying to simulate a centrifugal compressor and i'm having some difficulties to get the convergence in pseudo transient method.But if i did not select the pseudo transient ,i can get the convergence.

I simulate the rotation using Multiple Reference Frame (MRF). The rotor has an angular velocity of 5266 rpm, and the stator is stationary.

The mesh hasnīt shown any problems when i do the mesh check.

The boundaries are defined as pressure-inlet and pressure-outlet and periodic.

and the walls are the following:
-Wall-stator: The walls of the stator are defined as stationary
-Wall-rotor: Rotating walls of the rotor, defined as moving walls, relative to adjacent cell zone, with 0 velocity.

i use hybrid initialization.

When 130 iterations, i got the following message:
# Divergence detected in AMG solver: nut -> Decreasing coarsening group size!
# Divergence detected in AMG solver: nut -> Increasing relaxation sweeps!

Error: Divergence detected in AMG solver: nut
Error Object: #f

I've uploaded an screenshot of the two final result
Could anybody help me?

Lower the Courant Number and have a try. AMG means algebraic Multigrid.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 18:02.
