 April 30, 2004, 05:51 Difference results between Steady and Unsteady? #1 Giang T Vu Guest   Posts: n/a Hi all! I got different results when I change my model from steady to unsteady state (both states are converged successfully). What makes the unsteady results differ from the steady ones with the same conditions? thanks for help. Giang T Vu

While in unsteady State case they have it. When you are problem is steady you will get convergence whether you use steady State or unsteady State solver. Pratap

What would you say if I got the same pressure and velocity distribution and DIFFERENT vapor product (I'm modeling cavitation) when I switch from steady to unsteady mode?

 May 6, 2004, 09:07 Re: Difference results between Steady and Unsteady #6 Giang T Vu Guest   Posts: n/a Hi Vladimir, The time step size deduced from Courant number and I estimated around 0.001. I used 1st order implicit segregated solver with standard k-epsilon turbulent model. Giang.

For an unsteady simulation you have transient effects, pertubations in the flow etc which if averaged over enough time, MAY give you a similar result to a steady state simulation, but more by luck than anything else ? or is my understanding of steady and unsteady not correct ??
