 June 29, 2008, 07:48 Convergence Problem #1 AAJ Guest   Posts: n/a Hi all!! I am running a coupled solver for an inviscid flow simulation, my geometry is very much complex. I am using pressure far field and pressure outlet boundry conditions. Apart from residuals am monitoring Cl and Cd for the problem. Cl and Cd seems to be preety constant with max 0.5 percent variation from the max value. The residuals of x,y,z velocity, continuity and energy are not converging. They come down to a max of 1e-2 and then they start going up again, or they fluctuate arround some mean value. My question is that: Can i take this solution as a converged one? What are the factors that may exffect convergence of the problem?

I don't think it converge. I think some assumption is wrong. I use steady-state, inviscid, relaxation for pressure =0.2, for mom = 0.5 , other =1.0 , pressure-base, SIMPLE-scheme, all scheme pressure , mom, energy are second order upwind. the residual quite weird after 12000 iterations. Sry, my eng. is not good. how to fix it. I try MUSCL 3rd order, the residual has overshoot as manual explain.
