Results are time step dependent

I am trying to simulate a moving mesh problem where the motion is governed by fluid flow. i.e force_y()@Region:CYLINDER
I created the mesh in ICEM and did a grid and time convergence study for a stationary cylinder at Re=100. The residuals have an rms of 1e-05. The results obtained were accurate for a stationary cylinder but when I used the same grid for mesh motion, the results (displacements) were time step dependent. getting close to correct results for tstep=0.01 but very low values for tstep=0.001
1.) In my case should the grid convergence be done for moving mesh or stationary mesh ???
Thank you very much.

It may well be that your moving mesh model requires a different time step size. Looks like you need to repeat the convergence study with the moving mesh model.
