turbulent or laminar
Hi all,

I have a question in selecting the model (turbulent or Laminar). Ofcourse it depends on the reynold's number, but if i select a turbulent model for a laminar flow case, will this show any unstabilities in the solution or the solver recognises the laminar flow???

Thanks in advance

Re: turbulent or laminar
it will not recognize the laminar flow. The stability is dependent on your discritization scheme and Courant number for steady flow.
