 March 2, 2003, 08:40 a problem #1 liu Guest   Posts: n/a When I use Fluent to compute 3D flow field, the following information appears: ˇ°Turbulent viscosity limited to viscosity ratio of 1.000000+05 in 18 cells.ˇ± What does it mean? Do I need to reset any parameters? Do it affect computation results? Thank you!

 March 3, 2003, 03:08 Re: a problem #3 Raintung Guest   Posts: n/a I met with the same phenomenon. Can you explain in detail, please? What does the ˇ°sizeˇ± mean? The solver used is coupled and explicit. Thank you very much!

 March 3, 2003, 08:15 Re: a problem #5 zhhuang Guest   Posts: n/a Raintung,I mean maybe you create your model in Gambit,and the default length unit in Gambit is meter.while the real unit maybe is mm.But you forgot to scale the unit in Fluent,and the inlet mass is constant,the velocity will be dimiss.I hope I didn't confuse you! regards zhhuang

 March 3, 2003, 09:51 Re: a problem #6 Raintung Guest   Posts: n/a Thank you! But,are there any other reasons? I don't know what should I do.

 March 5, 2003, 05:03 Re: a problem #7 Marc Gugau Guest   Posts: n/a It means your turbulence model (I guess Standard k-e !?) calculates a turbulent viscosity that is higher than the maximum allowed value (solve/controls/limits). This often happens in stagnation points. You can check out the 18 cells by displaying 3d-contours of the interior-zone with a lower limit of 1e5. Furthermore you can avoid all this by choosing a more sophisticated turbulence model. Neverthless your computational result should only neglectably be affected.
