Dear all
I would like to model cavitation in the journal bearing by fluent 6.3 but when I use cavitation model, my solution is diverged!
I used small relaxation factors and also small mesh but the solution did not change. Also I tried to solve the problem by both SIMPLE and SIMPLEC algorithm but I canít achieve a converged solution!
Can anyone help me?
