Default is it unsteasy???
Posts: n/a
I am performing the simulation of a plane , couple,steady ,implicit, k-e, to get the cl,cd and cm of it. the cd can be leveled off after about 2000 iterations. but cl and cm is always oscillating,residual oscillates near e-3,the free stream mach is 0.6 and the angle of attack is 0 degree!!!

I have to increase the free stream mach to 1.5 to see if my grid is problematic,the results is good: cl,cd and cm can be leveled off ,all residuals drop down to e-4. so I think it should not be the problem of grid quality or boundary condition.

then I turn the solver to unsteady ,my god ! the residual drop down quickly! but the angle of attack is zero degree? is the real flow phenomena unsteady???
