 October 11, 1999, 15:04 Re: staggered grid #2 Md. Ziaul Islam Guest   Posts: n/a A staggered grid is used for pressure and velocity cells to obtain convergent solutions where the fluctuations in the velocity and pressure, as well as the free surface instabilities need to be evaluated.

 October 13, 1999, 01:06 Re: staggered grid #4 Frank Guest   Posts: n/a A staggered grid is used to prevent pressure velocity decoupling which can occur on a collocated grid if certain measures are not taken.

 October 13, 1999, 08:49 Re: staggered grid #5 Yangang Bao Guest   Posts: n/a pressure mode only occurs when you use the same low order of shape functions for pressure and velocity (velocity should be interpolated 1-degree higher than pressure due to NS equations) or when you use regular mesh.
