Hi everyone,

I am running a case which has the involvement of porous zone, where I am solving for pressure (p), velocity (v) and since it involves the solving of k-omega-SST model, k and omega, in the flow region. When I run the case with porousSimpleFoam, I get the residuals for pressure, k and omega, but I don't see any residuals for U. Although, when the simulation is complete, I do get the velocity distribution in the flow field as per my geometry.

Can anyone help me in answering why I dont see any residuals for velocity?
