    Firstly, I apologize if this should go somewhere else, but I couldn't find a specific forum to post this.

    I am about to conduct a CFD study on the Strouhal-Reynolds dependence for arrays of tubes.
    I want to be thorough with this study, and I will perform a mesh-independence study of it. This means:
    1) I will solve the problem with an initial mesh and I will obtain a solution
    2) I will solve the same problem again with a finer mesh and compare
    3) If the solutions were significantly different, I will proceed with an even finer mesh
    4) Keep doing so until the solution does not change anymore (within some tolerance)

    Now that I am going to start I've got some doubts about how much I should refine the mesh in each step to obtain meaningful changes.
    For instance, let's define N as a parameter which may be, for instance, the number of faces in a given contour of the domain. Thus, the number of cells of the mesh will grow (in 2D) proportionally to N^2.
    My question is: How much should I refine the mesh for each following step? Should I take 2*N (thus the number of cells will be multiplied by 4), 1.5*N,...? Or is it too much?
    I'd like to make moderate steps in order not to waste too much computing resources (it is transient problem, the computing time grows waaay faster than N^2), but if the mesh is not much finer than the previous one, then the solution I will obtain will not differ from the previous one either... and then it might look like the problem got grid-independent, but actually it didn't. Therefore, smaller refinement ratios would require tougher tolerances.

    So my question is... what tolerances/refinement ratios would you guys reccomend? Is there any relationship between refinement ratio and tolerances? What is your experience about this?

    Thanks for answers!
