 February 8, 2008, 13:56 Residuals Fluctuate after 3000 iter in inviscid #1 Shamoon Guest   Posts: n/a Hi all, I am running a problem of an aircraft on FLUENT 6.3. I am running inviscid model. The mesh size is i.7 Million. The problem is that for the first 3000 iterations the resiudals go smooth and then ALL(x, y, z velocitites energy) residuals start Fluctuating with very small amplitude. with 10 i peak per iteration I cant undersand wats the reason for that because solution is not going to converge even after 5000 itr. The problem was run on Parallel

If you're using a time dependent, the oscillations can be caused by numerical diffusion. The way to avoid these fluctuations consists in adaptin' time step in function of the general display of residuals. but if you're using a steady state model, I don't really know how to help you

But now except energy, all other residuals i.e continuity, k, x, y, z velocity and epsilon are fluctuating. following are the specs: 1. unsteady flow. 2. turbulent k-epsilon and RNG model 3. time step = 1 thanks satyendra
