Covergence Problem with simpleFoam

Hi Foamers,

we are simulating a valve with simpleFoam! We have carried out the first simulation by using a first order (upwind) numerical schems for divergence. So, we have switched it with a second order one (Gauss Linear). Here appears many problems with convergence!!

Anyone knows how set properly fvSchemes in order to have a seocnd order accurancy??

Here is our fvSchemes and fvSolutiuon:

ddtSchemes
{
}

{
default cellLimited Gauss linear 1;
}

divSchemes
{
default none;
div(phi,U) Gauss linearUpwindV cellMDLimited Gauss linear 1;
div(phi,k) Gauss linearUpwind cellLimited Gauss linear 1;
div(phi,omega) Gauss linearUpwind cellLimited Gauss linear 1;
}

laplacianSchemes
{
default none;
laplacian(nuEff,U) Gauss linear limited 0.5;
laplacian((1|A(U)),p) Gauss linear limited 0.5;
laplacian(DkEff,k) Gauss linear limited 0.5;
laplacian(DepsilonEff,epsilon) Gauss linear limited 0.5;
laplacian(DomegaEff,omega) Gauss linear limited 0.5;
laplacian(DREff,R) Gauss linear limited 0.5;
laplacian(DnuTildaEff,nuTilda) Gauss linear limited 0.5;
}

interpolationSchemes
{
default linear;
interpolate(U) linear;
}

{
default corrected;
}

fluxRequired
{
default no;
p ;
}

Hi Foamers,

no one has an idea about which problem could be???
