Hi everybody,
I'm trying to make a simulation using ChtMultiregionSimpleFoam, I have 3 fluid regions and 4 solid regions.
the simulation start and run for few time steps and then it gives fatal error as below:
Code:
Time = 0.0006

It seems that temperature diverge! I tried a lot of solutions but with no results ( changing the relax. factor, changing schemes, checking my BCs many times, changing time step). I have no idea! Any help please.
Thank you.

It seems that temperature diverge! I tried a lot of solutions but with no results ( changing the relax. factor, changing schemes, checking my BCs many times, changing time step). I have no idea! Any help please.
Thank you.

I got errors like these running buoyantPimpleFoam recently even with super small timesteps (deltaT .0000001 ) and I still got this error.

When I played around with my pressure variables (I had huge differences of initial pressure and final pressure because I used a BC table to setup the system inlet in 0/p_rgh) I noticed that I had a problem when the internalField (declared on the top in 0/p_rgh) got close to the pressure in the inlet, usually 3/4 through the simulation.

Hey guys,

I just came across this same issue and I am not sure if you have solved it but it seems that I got it to work. Try using the following script for the controlDict instead and test it for both steady-state and transient problems by changing the fvSchemes to steadyState and Euler. Let me know how it goes for you guys.

Code:
application     chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam;

startFrom       startTime;

startTime       0;

stopAt          endTime;

endTime         1000;

deltaT          0.011;

writeControl    runTime;

writeInterval   0.05;

purgeWrite      0;

writeFormat     ascii;

writePrecision  6;

writeCompression off;

timeFormat      general;

timePrecision   6;

runTimeModifiable true;

adjustTimeStep off;

maxCo 0.3;
** Please note that the name of the application is irrelevant therefore there is no need to change it between a transient and steady state solver.

If you try to use paraview and plot your simulation up to the point of crashing you can almost always see something going out of whack, in my case the pressure variable along the inlet was negative??? You should also check your your Cp (specific heat capacity at constant pressure) because if it's too small that could be another fault.

Hey Andrew,

So for the specific heat I am not too concerned because I am dealing with air (1004.4 J/kg-K). After doing some research, I have realized that this problem has multiple reasons such as: mesh refinement and settings in the systems folder. My first suggestion for you is to make sure you have a refined mesh. Type in the command line:

Code:
checkMesh -allTopology -allGeometry
For my case, I notice that there are 3 failures that were not pointed out on Fluent. If even after solving the mesh the problem persists, then I would play around with the systems scripts.

Cheers

Hey Andrew,

I am still trying to solve my problem but after some testing I have noticed that the only way to control the code is by under relaxing the parameters. Still, this is not the solution of the problem but a simple "artificial delay". I have been playing with the preconditioners but I am not getting good results. Let me know if you figure this out.

Cheers

If you are using chtmultiregionsimplefoam for steady state why the small time steps?
in the air regions are you using a zero or close to zero initial velocity? zero velocity can be a source of instability.
have you constrained the heat flux either explicitly or implicitly by thermal diffusivity?
solutions which do not prevent near infinite heat flux can be unstable.

Hi all.
I'm using chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam to simulating heat transfer between solid and fluid. I got the same error of maximum no of iteration exceeded. Can anybody plz suggest me where i am wrong ??? thanks in advance .
Here is my case file and report. the coil_solid is inside the tank_water

Hi everyone,

My case has 13 fluid region and 1 solid region & i am using chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam solver. Openfoam v2.3. and about the case are solid fluid coupling. Heat flux applied on the solid body and need to check the outlet fluid temperature as how much heat rejected.

And my problem is after some iterations, temperature getting diverged in one fluid region.

Error is mentioned below..

Code:

You could try to use a fixedTemperatureConstraint to start up your simulation. Perhaps also using dpdt off might help.

Hi jherb,

Thanks for your reply.. But with fixedTemperatureConstraint is not working. I am getting unknown patchField type error..

fixedTemperatureConstraint must by used in fvOptions.


Have a look at the different tutorials, where it is used, e.g. https://github.com/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM...olid/fvOptions

Hi jherb,

By using fixedTemperatureConstraint boundary type, just the temperature values are fixed at cell zones and for every iterations the temperature value are fixed as 'Min/max T:300 300'. But my problem was temperature tends to diverge after some iterations. That showing the error ''Maximum number of iterations exceeded''.
Whether the boundary types are correct for my boundary condition in attached case file??
Any other clue to solve my error??

Thanks in advance
Vishsel

I am not sure what you are doing. fixedTemperatureConstraint is not a boundary condition/type. It has to be applied in a fvOptions file. See e.g. Building a solver with fixedTemperatureConstraint using fvOptions

Hi Jherb,

Sorry for not seeing this problem before I have posting.. Exactly this is not a problem.. because the solid and fluid bodies are not even coupled.. there is no interface formation between both of it..
So I need a clue or solution to create an interface between solid and fluid body.
I had both solid and fluid body. I could get solid - solid interface as mappedWall by using any of this commands splitMeshRegions -cellZones -overwrite & splitMeshRegions -cellZonesOnly -useFcaeZones
But i don't get solid-fluid interface by those commands. But my mesh was also conformal. Only i am getting wall type, instead of mappedWall.
May i know why this problem occurs ?? what is the solution for it ?

Thanks in advance
Vishsel

Hello Vishsel!

Unfortunately you did not include the mesh in your case, so I could understand, which boundary is inlet, outlet, wall, or mapped wall...

That why I will try to give a general recommendation, how to setup the boundaries.

---------------------------------------------------

FLUIDS!

---------------------------------------------------

Temperature T:

- Inlets:

fixedValue is ok as you defined


- Outlets:

fixedValue or zeroGradient is not recommended!

Instead use:

type inletOutlet;
value uniform 300;
inletValue uniform 300;

zeroGradient ist not recommended cause it is less stable than inletOutlet!

- Walls:

zeroGradient is acceptable.

fixedValue is also acceptable if the value known


- Mapped walls without radiation:

type compressible::turbulentTemperatureCoupledBaffleMix ed; // there is no space between Mix and ed! --> Mixed
Tnbr T;
kappaMethod fluidThermo;
value uniform 300;

---------------------------------------------------------

Pressure p:

All boundaries should be defined as:

type calculated;
value uniform 1e5; // don't define zero!!!

--------------------------------------------------------

Pressure p_rgh:

- Inlets:

Zero Gradient is not ok, as in the case you uploaded!

Instead use:

type fixedFluxPressure;
value uniform 1e5;

- Outlets:

type fixedValue;
value uniform 1e5;

- Walls and mapped walles:

type fixedFluxPressure;
value uniform 1e5;

--------------------------------------------------

Velocity U:

- Inlets:

flowRateInletVelocity is ok, but it is better to start with fixedValue, be sure that the simulatiuon works, and then change to flowRateInletVelocity, cause this one is more complex to be defined...

type fixedValue;
value uniform (0.5 0 0);

- Outlets:

The best is to use:

type inletOutlet;
inletValue uniform (0 0 0);
value uniform (0 0 0);

zeroGradient ist not recommended cause it is less stable than inletOutlet!

- Walls:

type fixedValue;
value uniform (0 0 0);

------------------------------------------------------------------

Turn turbulence and radiation off at the start to be sure that the simulation runs and then turn them on after being sure that the simulation works. I will not comment them here cause I want to keep my answer as short as possible!

------------------------------------------------------------------

SOLIDS:

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Temperature T:

- Walls solids to fluids - or - solids to solids:

No radiation:

type compressible::turbulentTemperatureCoupledBaffleMix ed;
Tnbr T;
kappaMethod solidThermo;
value uniform 300;

- Wall not neighbor to fluid:

fixedValue is ok!

or as you defined is also ok!

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Pressure p:

All boundaries as:

type calculated;
value uniform 1e5;


If the wall is an outer boundary (not neighbor to a fluid):

type fixedValue;
value uniform 1e5;

----------------------------------------------------------------

All the values given here are just examples and could be changed as needed!

----------------------------------------------------------------

Most huge mistake is to define a high value in p_rgh (as example 1e5) and 0 in p!

you will get in most cases a divergence!

----------------------------------------------------------------

Give please a feedback if those suggestions works and please be free to ask anything you want.

Regards

Peter

PS: send the case complete to fix it for you, if there still a problem!
