Air density and kinematic viscosity default values


#1

Why air density and kinematic viscosity default values are 1.1965 kg/m³ and respectively 0.000015295 m²/s ?
Would not make more sense to have them set at 1.225 kg/m³ and 0.00001465 m²/s as standard atmosphere dictates?

Hi @dusan!

Checking it out and get back to you asap!

Hi Jousef,

Any update on this?

Hi Dusan,

reaching out to the engineers to see how far they have come.

Edit: Will be fixed at some point but does not affect the simulation results at all.

Best,
