Default RESIDUAL K-EPSILON high???
Posts: n/a

I'm using the k-epsilon Turbulent model to simulate the flow over the Prolate spheroid body. But in the Residual plot, the Residual of K and Epsilon is high (between 1e-1 and 1e-2) even the Residual of Velocities and continuity is alright.

Somebody can say to me something about it? It is Ok or if not how to avoid it?

Thanks in advanced!
