I am running a model with the following specifications:
- 2-D, axisymmetric
- turbulent (sst k-omega)
- species transport (binary system of dimethylformamide and carbon dioxide)
- UDFs for density, specific heat, viscosity, and thermal conductivity for CO2
- UDFs for specific heat, viscosity, and thermal conductivity for DMF
- polynomial fit for density for DMF
- pressure outlet
- two mass flow inlets, one for each species at nearly equivalent mass flow rate, different hydraulic diameter
- constrained temperature range [300,335]K due to range of data UDFs are based on
Continuity residual is staying consistently at E-3 and not dropping. I have tried many things like changing the polynomial fit to be higher order, changing the computational schemes for momentum, changing the relaxation factors, refining my mesh, and nothing has made it converge. Eventually around 30,000 iterations, the simulation diverges. Attached is a photo of the residuals up to the point of divergence.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I can provide more information as necessary.

Thank you for your response. I've added the flux reports below. Could you expand upon what you mean by the "behavior of some monitor points"?
Mass Flow Rate (kg/s)
Custom Vector Based Flux
