    What Is the Difference Between Average and Transient Results?

    There are two variants of simulation: Steady-state and Transient flow.

    In order to account for time-dependent effects, consider a transient simulation. If you are only interested in the converged steady state solutions where the flow condition does not change over time, consider a steady state simulation.

    • Steady-state simulations are not time-dependent, hence cheaper than transient simulations. But generally sufficient enough to do design comparisons at the design phase.
    • Transient simulations are computationally expensive, but for applications like moving turbines or high vortex flows, they give us more insight.
