Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is extensively utilized to predict flow behaviour in various industries and applications. The Full Order Model (FOM) is a high-accuracy approach to flow modelling, but it requires significant computational resources due to its high order and thousands of variables. To address this problem, the Reduced Order Model (ROM) was developed. Despite the advancement brought by ROM, there is a notable gap in research concerning the impact of mesh configuration on CFD-ROM results. While the number of modes has been extensively studied for its influence on CFD-ROM, the mesh configuration, a critical aspect of the simulation process, has received relatively limited attention. This study investigates the effect of mesh resolution on numerical results in CFD-ROM concerning turbulent flow within stationary parallel plates. Employing rigorous methods, including Richardson Extrapolation, verification, validation, and error percentage. The results explicitly confirm that mesh resolution directly impacts the numerical results of the velocity field in CFD-ROM. It is found that there is a notable reduction in Convergence Grid Index (CGI) values for different mesh ratios: 6.401% for medium-to-coarse and 2.031% for fine-to-medium ratio. Thus, with the same mode number, mesh resolution selection can enhance the numerical result of the velocity field in CFD-ROM.
