laura_c is on a distinguished road
Guys, if you use pseudo-transient as solver, could you still perform grid independence check?..does it makes sense?

oj.bulmer will become famous soon enough
Pseudo-transient is just a way of under-relaxing steady state equations. But you still need to capture the gradients and flow properties, requiring you to have adequate resolution of mesh, and hence mesh independence is a must.
