I'm using VOF model, the solution increasing to higher continuity. The flow velocity = 0.001 and 0.0001 m/s for air and water. I need to maintain the Reynolds number = 1 throughout the region due to thin film flow analysis and my time step = 0.001. The simulation diverging. Any suggest solving the problem.

I hope u have followed steps in fluent-manual/html/ug/node937.htm

It's indicated that global gourant number to big. Any idea to solve this matter. Please help. Global Courant Number : 26493.00 Error: Global courant number is greater than 250.0. The velocity field is probably diverging. Please check the solution and reduce the time-step if necessary. Error Object: ()
