October 30, 2020 at 2:10 pmWeiqiang LiuSubscriberHi all,nI am doing a catalytic combustion simulation in a micro-combustor with fluent. I found different initionlization methods will yield different iteration behaviour.nif I use hybrid initialization and patch a high temperature like 1600K to ignite the mixture, then temperature in computation domain will decrease from the patched temperature like combustion never happens.nHowever, if I use standard initialization and compute from inlet, then temperature in the domain will increase to a higher temperature and then decrease. intuitively, combustion truely happens this time though these two method give same final results.nI am wondering why would this happen?nBest regardsnweiqiangn

For example, in hybrid initialization, the laplace equation is solved to produce a velocity field which conforms to the domain and all other variables are patched based on domain averaged values. In standard initialization, you define the values of the flow variables and initialize to these values. n
