Hello friends! In the Residual Monitors of fluent ,the defalt convergence criterion is "absolute".Can I choose "none"? In some case ,it can not effect the result ,but in some others the result is not converged,that is why?

Hi Wanghuo,

I don't understand what you mean with in some cases it cannot effect the results, and in others it does not converge, can you elaborate?
I guess if you set convergence criterion to none it will not converge based on a certain value of the residuals - you disabled that - so you need to give other convergence criteria...

LuckyTran will become famous soon enough
In the GUI, uncheck the boxes labeled under "Check"

Disabling this option disables the comparison of the residuals with the the criteria as a terminating condition and allows the simulation to keep iterating.
