Mass and Energy residue
Dear all,

Now I'm running a simulation to a airliner cabin indoor environment like air-conditioning flow field (8 million grids). I am having difficulties in getting the mass and energy converged well.
I have tried the below procedures in order to get better convergence:
1) Turn on continuity only;
2) Turn off continuity, turn on Energy only;
3) Turn both continuity and energy on
For the first two steps, both continuity and energy residues were able to drop down. But the energy rsidue keep going up once I start running step (3)
Should I tried to start the energy iteration based on a better converged flow field in order to solve this problem?
