 March 5, 2008, 01:23 turbulent viscosity ratio on a large duct #1 newbie Guest   Posts: n/a I searched the forum but I couldn't quite get the answer to my problem. I ran a simulation where water flows through a very large square duct (5x5x30m). solver: k epsilon standard Inlet: velocity inlet 1 m/s duct wall: smooth wall outlet: outflow Mesh: quad mesh with 0.3 size (resulting in about 50,000 nodes). gravity on. specified operating density=0 The problem gets the turbulent viscosity limit error (1e5). Strange thing is that when I plotted viscosity ratio, almost all of the water body not close to wall had viscosity ratio around 1e5. How could this be so high in such a simple flow? Is this normal?

You can not (as I know) plot the ratio, only the viscosity, which isn't the same. You can set the limits in the Solve/Controls/Limits. Bye
