Default Pipe Flow and Turbulence
Posts: n/a
When solving for flow in a pipe at higher velocities, convergence for a pressure-based solver stalls at about 3 or 4 orders if we do not turn on turbulence. Shouldn't the code be able to converge and that the pressure drop would be much lower as compared to the experimental results.
