Flow around cylinder

I'm solving the steady Navier-Stokes equations by artificial compressibility method. Since the flow around the cylinder is unsteady, I can't get a steady solution. Anyone has experience with this? Any method to damp out the unsteadiness?

Re: Flow around cylinder

why to damp the unsteadiness. I am interested on the rational behind a steady state solution

If you follow the recent massage " General CFD question " in this thread you will see that i am having almost an oposite question which is what is the relevence of a steady state solution.

I solved the same problem using Finite Volume and SIMPLE method and obtained A steady state solutionfor Re=3900.

Re: Flow around cylinder

I am certainly no expert but I was under the impression that a problem with an oscillating transient solution should provide an underconstrained system and a steady state solution should diverge.

How is it that a steady state solution can exist at all ? Like I said, I don't know much and am simply curious about the answer.

How you validate the computational results with test data?

Re: Flow around cylinder

There is many experimental data and LES quality solutions (Mittal, Buerer, Moin, etc,..) for the flow past cylinder at RE=140,000 and 3900. I used them
