 August 26, 2022, 06:37 KEpsilon model incorrect result #1 New Member   Join Date: Apr 2022 Posts: 8 Rep Power: 2 Hello I am trying to simulate a realizableKE model. Geometry: 0.006x0.009mm rectangle. BC: top bottom - walls; sides - symmetry; left - inlet; right - outlet I calculated the velocity for the Reynolds numbers 500, 2000, 5000, and 9000 to be [0.04959, 0.19837, 0.4959, 0.8926] m/s with the hydraulic diameter being the distance between the top and bottom walls. (I consider this case as a parallel plate as I am using symmetry on either side) The simulation ran perfectly fine for RE500 and RE2000 but the 5000 Reynolds number is causing problems. I will attach the case setup for reference. Though, I defined no-slip condition for top bottom walls velocity is unevenly spread on the walls which I have no clue why.
