 May 23, 2014, 13:14 Fully explicit time accurate simulation #1 New Member   nilesh Join Date: Mar 2014 Location: Kanpur / Mumbai, India Posts: 27 Rep Power: 5 Hi, I want to simulate flow over NACA 0018 using MUSCL (without slope limiter) and "explicit runge-kutta" combination (preferably RK4). I wish to compute from t=0 to t=50 without using any kind of implicit methods. However the concept of dual time stepping is confusing to me. Dual time stepping uses euler implicit to take the problem to a steady state and then another 3 time level method to proceed to the next time step. I am into calculating "time-accurate" solutions in which I do not use any turbulence model and explicitly compute upto an estimated non-dimensional time until the flow has fully developed. However I am unable to do so in SU2 as the config file settings confusing me. Please provide me the config file settings and solution writing settings. Start time t=0 End time t=50 time step delt=10^-5 solution write interval: After 1000 steps. Thanks.

With regards of the time integration schemes, there is the option to use dual time stepping, explicit euler or RK methods. All you need to do is to make sure that the method that you are planning to use is selected in your config file. To improve the accuracy of your solution, you need to look at your mesh and make sure that it is refined in the places where you expect the highest gradients. Hope this helps, David
