For all my hull resistance simulation the pressure coefficient shows large oscillations (as I described in a previous post). This behavior really slow down the time before reaching a quasy steady state.

I thought it came from the boundary condition used in the tutorials DTChull :
  • totaPressure for atmosphere
  • variableHeightFlowRate; for alpha @outlet
  • outletPhaseMeanVelocity; for U @Outlet
So I went back to more classical BC with fixedValue for p_rgh @outlet and zeroGradient for U and alpha (@outlet). The behavior is better and the convergence is reached quicker but I still have large pressure oscillation.

Is it possible that it comes from fvsolution settings ? (I used the same as the tutorial).

Has someone experienced the same thing ?


Hello, Fasuter.

Do you solve this problem of large pressure oscillation?

I'm facing the same problem and would appreciate it if you could give me some hints.
