Hi everyone,

I am simulating a flow where it is initially un-steady and then it will become steady after some time.

In fluent i chose un-steady solver, pressure-based. But my question is how can i check if it has reached the steady-state.. will that be through the "monitor/residuals" ??


thanks.

yes, with the help of monitoring you can check if you reached the steady state. (no more fluctuation with time)
