Convert from StarCD 3.10 to StarCD 3.15
Hellow! every peope!

I convert my case from StarCD 3.10 to StarCD 3.15. When I start a new calculation or a restart in the new version, I can not get a converged results any more. Before that, I can get the convergd results in the old version. My case concerns the moderatly porous media as well as some baffles in the solution domain. I convert the case just by execute the command "PROLINKL".

I wonder if there are some conflicts between the two versions on these aspects. Or, if I should do more when I convert the case.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Convert from StarCD 3.10 to StarCD 3.15
The under-relaxation parameter for pressure has increased from 0.2 to 0.3. Try setting it back to 0.2.

You should rewrite the geom and prob files and do a starlink (not a prolinkl)
