I'm a new learner in Simulation world. I'm working on solidification simulation analysis using ANSYS Fluent. I'm trying to see the temperature variation and liquid fraction with time. My domain is like a cavity in the mold. I have filled the cavity with liquid metal. Now I want to see the solidification behavior of the metal.
I have selected the quadrilateral shape of the meshing under Hex dominant method with body sizing is 0.002 m. My mold size is approximately 56*30*20 cm3. I have completed the whole setup procedure in which residual values are 10^(-6). After 500 iterations it's showing an error like Error: Divergence detected in AMG Solver: Temperature
What could be causing this issue and how can I solve it ?

Please don't use the "hex dominant" meshing method. It's designed for Mech models and produces rubbish meshes for CFD: check the skew of your mesh. If you mean you have a mesh that is mostly hex then also check quality. The confusion comes from the naming of the meshing method: we have raised this as it causes confusion.
Otherwise you also need to work through all of the model settings: divergence just means the solver is struggling so isn't overly diagnostic.

Thanks a lot for your quick reply. can you advise me which type of mesh I can use for Ansys Fluent Solidification model?
Your reply will helpful for me.

Basically anything but the "hex-dominant" mesh. The best option is entirely dependent on the model and geometry. Polyhedrals may be suitable (via Fluent Meshing). Just be a little careful with the inflation aspect ratio.
