I was performing a frozen rotor simulation of a centrifugal fan (D = 150 mm). The simulation showed a slow but steady convergence for 1400 iterations, and then it suddently diverged.
The domain is divided in three parts: an inlet volume, an outlet volume and a moving reference.March 28, 2022 at 2:04 pmRobAnsys EmployeeThe solver doesn't look overly happy in the residual plot, but that could be as simple as a mismatch between the mass flow boundary and rotation speed. Double check you've set the correct zone to rotate. Did you set all of the walls in the fan region as rotating?
