Convergence with coupled implicit solver
I have an unsteady simulation that I have run earlier versions of using the segregated solver, and that worked just fine. However, now I want to add a very fast chemical reaction to my system, which will make the problem stiff. This causes the segregated solver to have problems as the reaction starts after a few hundred timesteps. I therefore want to change to the coupled (implicit) solver and also possibly use the special stiff-chemistry ODE solver that is built-in in the coupled solver.
My problem is, though, that when I change to the coupled solver, the solution diverges already in the first timestep (that is, before the reaction even takes place and for a situation where the segregated solver still works OK)... So, what can I do to get it to work? I have tried very low Courant numbers, but that does not seem to help (only slow down the rate at which it diverges). Are there any other parameters that I should experiment with? (FAS in the explicit formulation is not applicable since it is an unsteady simulation).
Any help or hints is greatly appreciated!

Hi 1-use very small time step for first itration 2-use very small cournt number in first 3-enable stiff model 4- refine your mesh goodbye
