 February 9, 2016, 14:16 when to stop iteration to get correct result. #44 New Member   pratik anand Join Date: Feb 2016 Posts: 6 Rep Power: 3 i am calculating drag force of moving vehicle for that i set BC and drag monitor for desired part then start iteration and i stop iteration in a regular time period and found different value of drag force at different iteration so,please give me idea when to stop iteration to got correct result.thanks for your suggestion.

If the values are constant then take them as it is. no need to take mean.

the fact is that ,the drag monitor (Cd) remain constant after 30 -35 iteration and continues as much as iteration taken and the value is
for iteration 80 , force approx 8000 and inlet -outlet mass =.3
for iteration 100, force approx 6000 and inlet -outlet mass =.002
for iteration 100, force approx 6000 and inlet -outlet mass =.002
for iteration 520, force approx 208 and inlet -outlet mass =.08
so i m confused
