 May 18, 2001, 21:41 why I can't get Second order convergence #1 mike huang Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links I use fluent to compute a ejecting flow in pipe, the main flow is about 4 mach.I can only make it converge to the first oder upwind scheme,but can't make it converge to the default second order upwind scheme. please give me some advice. thanks.

Are you saying that you are computing the Mach 4 flow in a pipe and you can get converged solution with the first-order upwind scheme only? (2). What is your Reynolds number?, mesh size and distribution?, turbulence model? boundary conditions? (3). How about the shock structures in the pipe? I think, these will affect the stability of the numerical solution. The first-order method will give you higher numerical viscosity to stabilize the flow.

This mostly helps due to the instationary behaviour of jets if you have more than one. They reason is that jets are interacting which leads to a periodic phenomenum.
