November 3, 2020 at 7:20 amChristijaaanSubscriberHi everybody,ndoes anyone know the equation used in CFX to calculate the acoustic mach number? I know this one here:nCFL = a * delta_t / delat_x ... with a = speed of sound, delta_x = related grit distance, delta_t = simulation time stepnThe problem is... I calculate a simualtion time step be means of the above equation as a function of a CFL number of for example 1. But later on the results show that the courant number calculated by ansys is 3. What does it mean? nMany thanks in advance for any kind of helpnChristian Lehrn

November 4, 2020 at 7:26 amChristijaaanSubscriberthanks for your fast reply. Yes, that's what I already wrote. Maybe again in other words... I was wondering why there is a factor 3 between the Ansys Courant number (simulation result) and the manually determined courant number (determined by means of the simulated speed of sound and the simuation time step). Is it because it is 3D? Thats currently our only hypothesis.... Thank you!n
November 4, 2020 at 2:20 pmDrAmineAnsys EmployeeProbably the length scale used for calculation of Courant Number.n
