Default Convergence problem
Posts: n/a
hi all,

I'm new to using FLUENT. I'm currently doing a simulation on displacement ventilation in an enclosed room. Somehow, the solution cannot converge when I turn on the energy equation. It starts off fine in the first 50- 60 iterations, but after that, the residuals start to flacuate about vigorously about a level. Reducing the URF seems to help a bit, but after 300 or so iterations, the residues seem to flacuate again, though only slightly. Has anyone encountered the same problem?

Hi Killian,

Are you using tetrahedral grid? How many continuum zone (region/domain) do you have?

My problem involve many domain, and with energy equation and viscous model. Somehow my simulation cant converge also, and as a result the temperature range of my result is unphysical. Please refer to my post for more info.

Good luck!
