yahmed is on a distinguished road
I am doing flow field simulation inside an open channel reactor, using SST model. Steady state.
continuity solution residuals don't go less than 10e-4, and all the other residual remained almost the same with a little oscillation in the values..
So is my solution converged or not?
I monitored a velocity for a point in the reactor and it was constant during the last iterations..

I appreciate any help!!
