Hi
I'm simulating an airfoil in range of 0-18 (deg) angle of attack, And I have convergence problem at 16...18 degree.
flow is incompressible,
Geometry is fixed and flow has direction,
K-Omega SST turbulent model at default settings,
Reference values are set (Area = chord length),
Standard initialization from inlet,

This doesn't look necessarily diverged, it's just oscillating a lot. Try using coupled scheme with pseudo time step and manage that time step. Also, try using fmg initialisation, it's a better form of initialisation. How does your fluid domain look? Can you attach any contours?

Hi, Thank you, Indra
It was a meshing problem and I tried to refine the mesh and finally, It was Solved, It was a steady state modeling, Therefore, I was unable to use a pseudo time step, I did it with FMG initialization, But it took much time and iterations.
All the best
