Extrusion with OpenFoam problem No. Iterations 0Hi, I'm trying to simulate a laminar flow in a cylinder (hole of the extrusion die) with inlet and outlet (bases) and wall (lateral). I modeled it with Salome 5 (CAE linux) and exported the mesh in UNV.

Someone can help me? Thank U! |

Hi,
your simulation seems to be fully converged... how does it look like in Paraview? Martin |

Quote:
I don't understand this issue. absolutely :( |

If you decrease the tolerances for the linear equation solver in system/fvSolution even further to let's say "tolerance 1e-12;", then the initial residual is higher then desired and more iterations will be done...
But it shouldn't be necessary... your simulation results should be fine enough after a few hundred iterations. You can add "convergence 1e-5;" to the SIMPLE dictionary in the fvSolution. simpleFoam will stop as soon as convergence criteria is reached: Code:
`SIMPLE` |

Quote:
so the problem is in the solid model? |

If simpleFoam makes 0 iterations for solving the linear equations system in the very first time steps, too, than there is a problem in your case. On the other hand if simpleFoam do make more than 0 iterations in the first time steps, everything is fine: simpleFoam found the correct solution and further iterations are not necessary.
You can send me your case, if you like, so I can have a look at it... my eMail comes via boardmail to prevent spamming... Martin |

I want to give him REP+ :) |

what was the outcomeThank you for posting all of your code.
Could you please post the changes that you made to make the model run correctly. I would really appreciate it:D |

Nonetheless, all of the critical details and solutions are fully explained by MartinB. If you don't understand the explanations, then please provide information about your own case, namely the problem you're facing. |
