Hello CFX users, I am new to CFX and I used Flow3D before where I had the % of simulation-finished is always shown, so I had an exact idea of how much time my simulation is going to take. Is there a way to find out the total time taken by the simulation inf CFX as well?

Thanks in advance,
Vikram

There is no "% complete" in the CFX solver since you determined when it will stop iterating the solution (convergence or max iterations). If you specified 100 iterations, then the current step number would be you "% complete"
You can determine how long say 100 iterations will take by seeing how long each one takes and multiplying by 100 if you wish.

Thank you very much for your answer.
I think we can also find it out from the number of time steps calculated/total no. of time steps.
