turbulence problem
I tried to find the Cd of truck (external flow). The message always showed : turbulent viscosity limited to viscosity ratio of 1.000E+05 What does it mean? My simulated result is fault?

Re: turbulence problem
this means that you have problems in convergence. lots of times i have seen it but after some iterations it your case you have AMD divergence error?IF YOUR PROBLEM CONVERGES THERE IS NO PROBLEM WITH THAT IN THE FIRST ITERATIONS.

Re: turbulence problem
Agree with STK. You may find where the turbulent viscosity is over the limit and check if the quality of your grids is good there.
