run time
Hello everybody,

can Numeca give an estimation about the run time?

thank you

it is impossible for NUMECA to give such estimations.
it needs exprrience and can be only done by user approximately.
in fact it depends many parameters like:

-mesh type (sturctures, unstructured)
-mesh sizes
-flow field geometry (shape and dimensions)
-flow regime (laminar or turbulent)
-near wall treatment method applied
-turbulence model used (if any)
-initial conditions
-convergency criteria
-time dependency of flow (steady or unsteady)
-subsonic or suppersonic flow?
-single or multi phase flow?

each of parameters named above can affect run time.
