Hello all
I am using kOmega solver(Also KomegaSSTLM solver) and residuals gets very small, but I do not get convergence message on the screen why? What is the criteria for convergence?
Also, what is the meaning of
Number of lambda iterations exceeds maxLambdaIter(10)
which happens in some iterations? I have attached my residuals below.
