Hi all,

My system has 3 inlet and several outlets. I measured the flow for inlet and outlet.
I'm using the velocity inlet boundary condition and outflow for outlets. I faced following problem in my simulation.
1. My simulation doesn't converge properly. The lowest continuity is about 10e-2!!! Which is not good at all.
2. My pressure results sounds ridiculous it change from a very high value to a very low value I don't know how can I fix it.

Thank you
