 April 20, 2005, 06:42 Re: time step size. #4 Sham Guest   Posts: n/a Thanks guys, I am modelling a 2D pipeline on the seabed with a gap. This is to see the vortex shedding structure. I use an ske turbulence model. Luca, I hope you can explain what do you mean what frequency of the model that I want to describe. I hope you guys can help me with this. I'd really appreciate all the help. Sham.

 April 26, 2005, 06:59 Re: time step size. #6 anisa Guest   Posts: n/a The total time T=L/u, where L - length of your pipeline, u - inlet velocity. The pipeline length, for example 100m. In that case it is better to divited the length by 10000 parts, thus time step=T/10000, where 0 < time step < T. I wish you every success!!!
