 July 14, 2009, 14:20 Bounding OMEGA #1 New Member   Barath Ezhilan Join Date: Jun 2009 Posts: 20 Rep Power: 16 Hi all, I am simulating flow in a draft tube using transient SimpleFoam k-omega SST model and k-omega SSTF filter model added by Hakan Nilson I have a basic doubt!! In certain time steps i am getting lines which say bounding omega, min: -1.15066 max: 11926.8 average: 522.558 But the solution converges still. (I have experienced similar cases where the bounding min and max values keep increasing and stops) I would like to know, is the solution correct or not??

I am using the k-w SST turbulence model and during iteration, I have both bounding k and omega. The min and max values are between 1e-6 to 1e+6. FYI, I applied boundary layers on my car (it's an external aerodynamics of car in a wind tunnel case) - about 10 layers and the y+ values are between 0 to 100 (average of about 30). I think it is because of my y+ values but I am not really sure. If it's true, then should I increase my y+ values by making the layers nearest to wall to be thicker? Could anyone help me on this? Regards, Ayu

Then I tried reducing the relaxation factors for k and epsilon. I gave very low value like 0.01. Of course the simulation took a long time, but the bounding values did not go to extremes. Try it out and let me know. Cheers, Balakrshnan Ramakrishnan
