November 23, 2020 at 9:46 amRobForum ModeratorWhen you adapt the mesh you more-or-less half the cell length (look at the adaption section in the User's and Theory Guide), this obviously has implications for the courant number. At the same time the refined mesh may pick up some new flow features further reducing the time step required for stable solving. Have a look at the flow field and reduce the time step to suit. Adaptive time stepping can work in some cases, but with dynamic adaption you may find it changes too quickly for the solution: fixed tends to be a little slower but much more stable. n
