Default Convergence of Continuity equation
Posts: n/a
Hi I am dealing with a steady state VOF (implicit)simulations, the continuity residual is not reducing down below 0.8. Could any one suggest what to do?

I tried everything possible.

I don't know what problem you must simulate, but, generally, it NOT may be physically reasonable that the multiphase flow can have the steady-state behavir under any condition.

I think better that, through the transient solutions of your problem, you obtain the final solution which you want(psuedo-st-st solution).
