Most methods presented in the literature for estimation of discretization errors focus primarily on steady flows. The transport of error in strongly transient flow has not been adequately addressed. Issues related to transient error calculations are discussed and some methods that are viable for such applications are proposed. Examples are presented on simple flows such as transient Burgers equation followed by applications to more complex flows, e.g. two-phase gas-solid flow relevant fluidized beds. It is demonstrated that error estimation can be made with reasonable accuracy using a combination of various methods.
