Default How can I modify the codes?
Posts: n/a
I wrote codes below to simulate the flow over an circular cylinder. But the Cd was not exact to 0.6 for Re=1e7. Can you teach me what are errors, how can I improve the results. Thanks. (

CODES: !Re = 3.09e-6

Hopefully, this is a typo! you should have 3.09e6. As for the rest, you are not "writing" a code as you claim, but just inputting data. As such, it is difficult to answer your general question without knowing the details.
