Dear all,

I'm using icoFoam solver for my own case. is there any method to know if the solver reached steady state, or i have to watch values until reach steady state.?

hi

I think . this case need to run icofoam up to Number of U & P iteration ~= 0. such as stationary method ( you can see it on the COMSOL program )
if my idea is wrong please guide me

Hi,

You can see my post :
IcoFoam stationary solution STRONGLY dependent on the tolerance of the linear solver

best regards,

OF follows finite volume approach & COMSOL follows finite element approach. you can't compare their technique both are different
