Default The residuals in FLUENT
Posts: n/a
Hello,everyone. I have a simple question about the residuals in FLuent. Are the resduals in FLUENT relative value or absolute value? I have finished a calculation with the residual of 10-4. When I continue the calculations, the residuals don't change any more. Is is a satisfied result? Need I change some parameters to get better result? Thanks!

i think they are relative values , if u observe no change in the result of your residual then i think you should stop your iterations , but make sure u see these behaviour well below in negative directions like negative 5 or 6 or whatever u have set in th residual check

i hope i have answered you
