Hello Foamers!
I'm currently trying to set up a new case. Except for the geometry which is imported from Fluent (using fluent3dMeshToFoam) I started from scratch.
The solution should be compressible and turbulent; therefore I decided to use rhoPisoFoam. But I'm not sure whether this is the best choice. In Fluent the case runs stable with a constant time step size of 2.5e-4 but letting rhopisoFoam adjust the time steps the step size falls below 5e-6. On the other hand rhoPisoFoam exits with "max. No. of iterations exceeded" when fixing time step size.
Can anyone give me some hints, please!



PS: This archive contains my case.
kind regards
