Question Unsteady Results-Flow over a sphere

raskolnikov is on a distinguished road
Hi everyone,

i have a question about my unsteady cfd results. I am simulating a time-dependent (unsteady at inlet velocity 20 m/s) flow over a sphere with Star CCM+ which is in the middle of the wind tunnel. Also some pictures are saved in every time-step.

After some time-steps I mean the time= about 0.5 s, the velocity and also vorticity distributions change really minimally, as opposed to the time between 0-0.5s. So that i cant see the turbulent structures on these distributions. The solution is like an end result of a steady state!

(Time-Step is chosen= 0.002s)

I have expected that the periodic fluctating behaviour could be clearly seen.

Is it normal that the flow can be stable in this case? Or is it unrealistic how I define the problem?

Thanks in advance.
