 October 30, 2006, 09:16 TRANSIENT SOLUTION CONVERGE #1 MARK Guest   Posts: n/a I will ask a simple question related transiet analysis. How can I understand a transiet solution is converged or not? Thanks already for your replies.

To terminate a transient problem, you would need to look at the response of suitable integrated coeffcients(eg. Cl or Cm for an airfoil) with time, and if they have achieved a periodicity with nearly constant amplitude then transient response is considered to be "converged" Hope this helps Regards, Ganesh

I always thought the usage of the term "transient" is arbitrary. The real question is "how do I know that an unsteady solution is converged?", and the answer is: by observing convergence within each time step (in a dual-time approach) and by performing a temporal resolution study (decrease the time step and see if the solution changes significantly).
