When plotting mass flow vs time at a certain location along the duct, I notice that the plot is sinusoidal type with decaying amplitude...but it decays very slowly and convergence could thus take a long time. Appreciate advice on how this long settling time could be reduced. Thanks in advance!

Jamenson (JST) dissipation model is usually used together with multigrid, enthapy damping, local time stepping, and applies to transonic flow. Check if you have used these techniques.

What is your boundary condition at the inlet and exit? Do you use Riemann invariant? Thanks for your info.

So the boundary condition at inlet and exit need to specify the above 5 parameters, den,den*u,den*v,den*w,den*e. So at inlet, you use total pressure, temp and flow angle to calculate the above 5 parameters. But at the exit, only pressure.Do you use pressure to compute the above 5 parameters? Or extrapolate from the inside domain? If you use Riemann to extrapolate, pressure might not be the same as you specify. I know in physics we specify pressure at exit. But from computer coding, exit need to specify the above 5 parameters. Thank you again for your advice.
