What has happend to the edges of domain
Hi,
I use rhoSimpleFoam to simulate a blade of gas turbine. This is the picture of the simulation result. http://user.qzone.qq.com/76247914/ph...FlyYK9YkAAA!!/ What has happend to the edges of domain? Is there something wrong with the cyclic boundary conditions?

Sorry, I can't see any pictures of your domain ...

Yes this looks strange. Can you provide a picture of the actual mesh?

From my experience with interFoam I can tell that sometimes slightly skewed hex cells give rise to problems with the pressure.
This may be an explanation for the pressure field in proximity of the bend. Using corrected schemes for snGrad solved the problem within interFoam. Maybe you even have to increase the value of nonOrthogonalCorrectors, which triggers the number of correction loops within the solution of the momentum equation. But this is not explaining the pressure region at the outlet.

Is this decoupling problem?

And what happend to your domain in the first picture?

I changed relTol from 0 to 0.05 in fvSolution, than the first picture is the result. I found that there are some fluctuating of pressure near the outlet boundary. I think that something wrong with pressure and velocity.
