Hello, this is my first post, i'm actually a new user to ANSYS FLUENT.

I'm in the design process of an airfoil, i did my mesh(ICEM) and the quality tells me i'm over 0.8 in all the mesh.

When i run the FLUENT analysis, it always converges on 0 to 12 AoA, even though i think i'm wrong the AoA vs Cl plots a very nice curve.

I don't really know if that's correct.

I used Trans SST coupled and second order upwind with pseudo transient active. When iterating approximately at 160 to 180 it converges, the residuals also converge.

help pls

may be you can decrease your time step-size or select as adaptive instead of fixed and convergence also depends on courant number so you can check that as well
