Flow around a heated cylinder

3 Attachment(s)
Hi Foamers,

I have to run a case of a flow past a heated cylinder with rhoPisoFoam. The air temperature is 300K and the wall temperature is 340K.
The velocity is 1 m/s.
After some iterations (less than 10) I have an error:

Time = 0.09132

diagonal: Solving for rho, Initial residual = 0, Final residual = 0, No Iterations 0
DILUPBiCG: Solving for Ux, Initial residual = 0.996377, Final residual = 9.70033e-06, No Iterations 269
DILUPBiCG: Solving for Uy, Initial residual = 0.997456, Final residual = 8.79396e-06, No Iterations 277
DILUPBiCG: Solving for h, Initial residual = 0.948008, Final residual = 8.83847e-06, No Iterations 847

--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Maximum number of iterations exceeded

I think I have a problem with my BC. Can you help me? Please find enclosed my case.
Cynthia.

Maybe try changing adjustTimeStep no;, into adjustTimeStep yes; so as it adjusts the timestep according to the maximum Courant number you set.

Thanks a lot thekay.
I have decreased my courant number and it works well!

which turbulence model are you using and what are your BC's?
