 March 7, 2007, 08:20 Re: reversed flow #3 Sangeeta Guest   Posts: n/a I wanted to knw whether i should continue iterations even if it says reverse flows. will this iteration converge even if at some places there are reversed flows. or i should give change the boundary conditions as soon as i get reversed flows while iterating. Plz Help. Thanks in advance
