Thanks a lot for your help yaron

Which discretization scheme for convective terms in the transport equations did you choose? Try to increase its order to obtain better results. Did you try to use FLUENT adaption function? Hi ap

I didn't understand your explanation on "convective terms in the transport equations" - what do you mean by that and how can I do it? THANKS a lot for your help yaron

 June 18, 2004, 03:46 Re: 2-D GAMBIT mesh #4 ap Guest   Posts: n/a FLUENT offers different kinds of discretization schemes for the convective terms of the transport equations you're solving in your model, You can find them in the Solve->Control->Solution menu of the FLUENT graphical interface. A better accuracy can be obtained using a high order discretization scheme such Second Order Upwind or QUICK. Also the pressure-velocity coupling algorithm is important. You can change it in the same window where you choose the discretization scheme. Hi ap
