Hi, everybody,
I am runing turbDyMFoam, and I set controlDict as the following:

//&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&
startTime 0;
deltaT 0.005;
writeInterval 10;
//&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

but I get the result output in such time folders:
0.0139211
0.0227244
0.0319803
....

Do you know the reason?
well, thx in advance

hjasak will become famous soon enough
I bet you are running automatic time-step control. Have a look at the bottom of controlDict
