Default Residuals in a Transient valve analysis.

Hi there,

I am running a transient simulation for flow through a valve. I have the timesteps set to 1e-05s for 100 timesteps which I hope should give me a reasonable solution. However, I am at a slight loss as to whether the results look right or not.

Attached are two images, the first has the residual drop for against iterations for a selection of timesteps. The second shows the outputs of a selection of monitoring points. (Please excuse the slightly pixelated image, a quick paint hash job was necessary to get the images uploaded).

Is the fact that the residuals seem to be going unstable over time necessarily a bad thing in a transient solution? The monitoring points seem (simulation is still running at this point) to be converging on reasonable values.

Any input would be much appreciated.
