If not, in a transient simulation, constant magnitude of transient BC will yield in a "statistically steady state" solution with a sufficient run time.

But in a finite volume solver like CFX, if you can assume that when you define a volume you are simulating that the boundary conditions do not change with time and the fluid condition at all points in the volume do not change with time then it is a steady state simulation. So think about whether the boundary condition changes the simulation volume. For example, if a wall has a tangential velocity this can be modelled by a tangential velocity on the wall but the simulation volume is not changed - therefore it is steady state. If you have a wall with a normal velocity this will change the simulation volume - therefore it is transient. __________________ Note: I do not answer CFD questions by PM.
