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?

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.

 June 17, 2002, 11:05 Re: Flow around cylinder #3 Peter Kostka Guest   Posts: n/a 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.
