danobis is on a distinguished road
i'm using the "oodles" solver to study a vehicle external aerodynamic problem, and after some iterations my job crash cause to the divergence of Courant number. I tried both modifing the mesh refinement and reducing the time step, but it doesn't work.
So i set system/controldict inserting adjustableTimeStep but it doesn't enable during the run.
My question is: is not adjustableTimeStep compatible with oodles solver?
Thanks in advance!
Best regards.
