Hi,

The time step continuity errors are indicators of how much mass balance
is met.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply, I have question again.
What happens if its increases? and decrease?

how can we come to conclusion, is it going right or wrong?

how can we fix it, if its goes wrong?

Thanks for your time and reply,
Aadhavan
