Hi all,

I am quite new in Foam and CFD sorry about my ignorance! I have read lots of post and try lots of different configuration but unfortunately I didn't make it work.
I would like to simulate the effect of the heat exchange into a vortex tube using inlet air to a certain speed. I am pretty sure that I didn't use the correct solver with the correct values. I put some result of simulation too.
here is part of the result:
diagonal: Solving for rho, Initial residual = 0, Final residual = 0, No Iterations 0
time step continuity errors : sum local = 0.777335, global = -0.191246, cumulative = 404.083
rho max/min : 8.861e+12 -1.13053e+13

I attach all the case for those who will kindly look at it.

Any help wil be welcomed.
