Hello all,

I am implementing the re-distancing equation for the Level Set Method. For this I need a "fake" time evolution. In particular, I need to control the number of cycles and the CFL for the re-distance equation.

Does anyone know how to create a "fake" time other than by sub-cycling.

Many thanks,


Thibault

All right, I have created a second Time object called runTime2 and produced a dictionary called controlDict2. It seems to do the trick.

Is there a better way?

Thanks,


Thibault
