Convergence and steady state using simpleFoam4 Attachment(s)
Hi Foamers,
I am doing a simulation of an hydraulic orifice by using simpleFoam. I got many problems about convergence. After several trials, I got a good solution under the physical point of view. Nevertheless, I still have some doubts regarding the convergence. Here there are my fv Schemes and my fvSolution files: Quote:

As attachments there are all the data regarding convergence! Although all the variables seems to converge (except for Ux), some of them still oscillate. Must I worry about it?? Additionally, I forced the convergence by edit the tolerance, unless all the variables would have decreased until reach very (VERY!!) low values! Anyone can tell me if my solution converge or not (and if does it reach a steady state)? Moreover, what exactly means the continuity graph (plotted by using pyFoam)? Thanks in advance Best Regards Marco |
