HI,

I have a code that solves the viscous/inviscid cases.I am working on the validation of the code and i have seen a shock wave appearing at mach 0.5 at 6 degrees(inviscid case) but only in fine grids.The strange thing is that in coarse grids as well as in viscous cases the shock isn't there(cl ~0.75 in coarse grid ~0.669 in viscous cases).However when i use a fine grid to run the inviscid code a shock appears and the lift coefficient is around 0.85...

I know it's weird and i am looking for a bug for a while now but nothing came up.Has anyone here experienced anything like this?

It would help me much if somebody was able to run an inviscid naca0012 on a fine grid at mach 0.5 at a = 6 degrees and post the pressure coefficient.

Thanks again.

This thing is not strange because all difference schemes have non-physical (artificial) viscosity depending on grid spacing. Your shock is weak and it smeared at coarse grid. It is natural phenomenon.
