Dear all,
I am simulating the problem of blood flow through an artery in 2D considering laminar flow. For this I am using the Walburn and Scneck model to define the blood viscosity using the equation:
mu_lam=K*(strain)^(n1), where K=14.67*10^(3) and n=0.7755. In order to define the viscosity I am using the following UDF:
#include "udf.h"
DEFINE_PROPERTY(cell_viscosity_power_law,c,t)
{
double mu_lam;
double strain;
double muinf = 14.67e3;
double n = .7755;
strain = pow(C_DUDX(c, t),2)+ pow(C_DVDY(c, t),2)+
2*pow(C_DUDY(c, t)+ C_DVDX(c, t),2)+
2*pow(C_DUDZ(c, t),2)+
2*pow(C_DVDZ(c, t),2);
strain = pow(strain, 0.5);
strain =fabs(strain);
mu_lam=muinf*pow(strain,n1);
return mu_lam;
}
But, once I try to solve it the solver gives the error: Divergence detected in the AMG solver.
Please help me...
