time dependent problem
hi all

Im still working with cars Im trying to do depedent time calculations and I dont know which values do I have to put in Time step size (s) Number of time step and max. Iterations per time step to begin this test thank so much if anybody can help me greetings to you all

Re: time dependent problem
What kind of time calculations do you mean?

Re: time dependent problem
I understand that you are working on the aerodynamics of a moving car. Please correct me if I'm wrong. May I ask why you need to do transient analysis for this?

Hi matey Thank for your concern on my works and I working with cars and The flow pattern aroumd the car is highly unsteady beside the flow behind the car is separated so to get a good drag and lift result I guess that I must do unsteady analisis and to star this analysis I need some values of Time step size(s) Number of time steps and Max. Iterations per time step

Greetings Mateys and take care

To start off I would suggest using the time it takes the freestream flow to pass through one cell.

Re: Hi paul , Prasad ... from Adrian
For a car speed of 100 m/s (or avg speed of incoming air - something like avg wind tunnel air speed), I would start with a quarter of a milisecond. But again, it depends upon the solution stability.
