Hi to all!

I have a problem running a simple problem of mixed natural and forced convection in a square cavity, where the flow enters at the top of the cavity, and exits at the bottom of the opposite side (Blay cavity).

The simulation runs without problem using upwind scheme for convective therms, but If I turn to second order scheme (limitedLinear) I obtain the following error:

Errore di virgola mobile

Reducing under-relaxation coefficients the error still remain the same.

The scheme used for the convective terms are the following:

default none;
div(phi,U) Gauss limitedLinear 1;
div(phi,h) Gauss limitedLinear 1;
div(phi,k) Gauss limitedLinear 1;
div(phi,epsilon) Gauss limitedLinear 1;
div(phi,R) Gauss linear;
/* div(phi,U) Gauss upwind;
div(phi,h) Gauss upwind;
div(phi,k) Gauss upwind;
div(phi,epsilon) Gauss upwind;
div(phi,R) Gauss upwind;*/
div(R) Gauss linear;
div((muEff*dev2(grad(U).T()))) Gauss linear;

Many thanks

Solving the same problem with buoyantFoam (PISO instead of SIMPLE) the second order discretization schemes works correctly.

Any ideas?

Good day Michele. Are you still working on mixed convection boundary layer flow? I ask such a question because it pertains to my research. I am having problems specifying boundary conditions for a vertically oriented flat plate with a incoming freestream velocity from the bottom.
