Hi,
I am attempting to replicate a 2D compressor profile test case using the transonicMRFDyMFoam solver from the Density Based Turbo package for OpenFoam1.6extend. I have run the case in sonicFoam and have a reasonable result, which I am attempting to replicate in transonicMRFDyMFoam. sonicFoam results: sonicFoam_p_converged.png sonicFoam_U_converged.png The pressure and velocity transonicMRFDyMFoam results diverge very quickly. transonicMRFDyMFoam_p.png transonicMRFDyMFoam_U.png In the attached case, I used the keyword "cyclic" for the periodic boundary conditions (to model an infinite array of blades) at the top and bottom (using createPatch to merge two patches into one periodic patch), however I have also used 'cyclicGgi' periodic boundary conditions to the same result. I have been stuck on this problem for a while now, any help would be greatly appreciated. I have attached the set up files, however the full polymesh files were too large to attach, so only the 'boundary' polyMesh file has been included. sc10_tranconicMRFDyMFoam.tar.gz Thanks heaps

Hi Trent,
Have you been able to run transonicMRFDyMFoam case of your's successfully ? I need some help in this regard. Can you please help me ?

I have set up the case for radial inflow turbine passage. I have used cyclic boundary condition for periodic surfaces and overlap GGI between the rotating and stationary parts. When I run the case I am getting following error. Code:

Hi, Sam
1. I have a look at the attached files. For the inlet boundary, total pressure, total temperature and flow direction are usually specified. I find that you did not set the inlet flow direction, but zeroGradient in 0/U file is set in the inlet patch instead. I think you can try the typical boundary condition provided by Borm. 2. According to my experience, you can first turn off turbulence, set a higher outlet pressure (e.g. 190000Pa) and set the rotating speed to zero. If this calculation works, then you can gradually improve the rotating speed and lower the outlet pressure. 3. For the interrow treatment, which kind of method did you use? (mixing plane or frozen rotor) Last edited by dowlee; May 14, 2014 at 04:12. Reason: wrong words

Hi, you will download the folder named densityBasedSolver in http://sourceforge.net/projects/openfoamextend/.
There are some tutorials provided by Brom in the directory "densityBasedSolver/run"

I was able to run the case but after 1000 iterations I am getting wrong flow rate .

Hi, I am sorry that I am very busy recently to reply to you late. There seem to be no problems for your case. for the outlet pressure boundary, you can use "inletOutlet"instead of "zeroGradient" to avoid reverse flows.

Hi,
Now the case is running but gives some error after some 100's of iterations. The error is as follows Code:
Time = 2000 diagonal: Solving for rho, Initial residual = 0, Final residual = 0, No Iterations 0 diagonal: Solving for rhoUx, Initial residual = 0, Final residual = 0, No Iterations 0 diagonal: Solving for rhoUy, Initial residual = 0, Final residual = 0, No Iterations 0 diagonal: Solving for rhoUz, Initial residual = 0, Final residual = 0, No Iterations 0 diagonal: Solving for rhoE, Initial residual = 0, Final residual = 0, No Iterations 0 bounding rho, min: 1057.88 max: 3688.91 average: 0.756053 bounding rhoE, min: 1.08367e+09 max: 1.20384e+10 average: 385827 bounding U max: 9.60207e+07 bounding h, min: 3.98146e+07 max: 7.099e+07 average: 620124 From function specieThermo<thermo>::T(scalar f, scalar T0, scalar (specieThermo<thermo>::*F)(const scalar) const, scalar (specieThermo<thermo>::*dFdT)(const scalar) const) const in file /home/sml5kor/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM1.6ext/src/thermophysicalModels/specie/lnInclude/specieThermoI.H at line 73 Maximum number of iterations exceeded.
