Turek-Hron FSI 3 problem - dealii not converging in first time step

Hi
I’m trying to run the “Turek-Hron” tutorial provided with preCICE. I’ve followed the introduction page to the tutorial, but when I try to run it, dealii just doesn’t converge in the first time step. I’ve run the fluid case seperately and the inlet seems to work as intended. I close the following from dealii:

Does anyone have an idea, what I’m doing wrong? I run the following versions:
Dealii 9.4.0
OpenFOAM 2206
preCICE 2.5.0
Ubuntu 20.04

Hi @AndersAaroee,

What exactly doesn’t converge? In the log you posted above, everything seems to work perfectly fine. Could you elaborate your problem more in detail and post the full log files?

Hi David, thanks for your reply.

The relative convergence measure comes back false as it shows in the bottom of the log I posted. It keeps doing this until it comes to the max iteration and then proceeds (The example is at iteration 16 out of 100). In this way it can run the simulation, but I don’t believe this was how it was intented by preCICE.
