 August 13, 2001, 05:40 Porous Media #1 Armin Gips Guest   Posts: n/a I have an 2-d object with a porous zone in it. First I calculate a solution without the porous media (k-epsilon turbulence modell;two layer zone). All residuals are lower than 0.003 and all monitors are constant. Then I switch on the porous media. Now the residual of continuity does not decrease (contstant value1,2) and the residual of k increases. (all other decrease and the monitors are constant). What can I do? Thanx Armin

There are many cases that residual history of continuity doesn't decrease when B.C.s are not properly set. P.S : If I were in your shoes, I would solve that problem switching on the porous media without k-e model. Then, I would turn on the viscous model and try to converge by changing relaxation factors.

Then I switch on the porous media and the residuals of continuity increased, and now they are constant. What else can I do? Yours Armin
