Mass balance problem in cavitation modeling

    • CRMALI


      I am doing the transient simulations for high Reynolds number flow through an orifice. I am using Schnerr and Sauer model for cavitation. 

      I am getting convergence in terms of residuals but I am not getting the mass balance. Error in mass balance increases with flow time.

      I have performed simulations with Singhal et al. model also but still, the problem remained the same.

      Is there any solution for this kind of error?

      Thanking you

      Have a look at the flow field, and check mesh resolution around the cavitation areas.
