Continuity Residual


#1

Hi,

I’ve completed a simulation about a Rearview Mirror (Turbulent Regime) and I would like to know if it is possible to plot the continuity residual. If yes, how can I do it?

Best,
Pedro Paulo.

Hi Pedro @pedro_brito,

My colleague Babak (@gholami) would be the best to comment on the continuity residual - Babak, what to you think?

Best,

David

@pedro_brito,

unfortunately, we don’t plot the continuity residuals. You can check the values in the course of the simulation, look for something like this in the log:

time step continuity errors : sum local = 4.98893e-05, global = 1.58819e-20, cumulative = 7.4834e-21

On the positive side, we are working on a more elaborate way to monitor convergence. Then, you will have more control over quantities to watch.
