What is your Re-number and what is the resulting yplus? Ralf __________________ CFD - nothing but Colourful Fluid Dynamics

If you have coarsened the grid so much (almost half its size), your cell quality might suffer. And this can causes problems with convergence. So take care, that the cells are not to much screwed! For wall functions, your yplus value has to be in a certain range. Otherwise they are not valid (std wall funktions: 30 < yplus < 300). So, if your grid changes, your yplus changes as well. And the solver might have problems to calculate the wall function.... __________________ CFD - nothing but Colourful Fluid Dynamics

 April 28, 2009, 16:33 wierd problem #5 New Member   Amir Eshtiaghi Join Date: Apr 2009 Location: Massachusetts, USA Posts: 9 Rep Power: 10 i extracted the mesh from icem one more time. in this time the solution is not converged and i dont know what is the problem. i solved the same problem last week and it was converged but it doesn't. i dont know what is the problem and i checked all the boundary conditions. i compared all summaries. both are same. give me advice thanks
