Default residual of volume-fraction increases
Posts: n/a
Hello, I'm running a unsteady 2D multiphase (granular flow) problem with the eulerian model. I've ste the underrelaxation coefficient for the volume fraction up to 1 to solve a problem with the continuity residual. But now my residual for volume fraction increases in every time step. The step size is 1e-4s. That is the lowest I can handle with, because of the calculation-time. So far, does anybody has an idea what the problem could be??

thank you

Did you ever figure out the problem? Im having the same problem and thought you might have figured it out.
