unsteady state to steady state

Hello to all!
I am using twoLiquidMixingFoam solver of OpenFoam v-2.0.1. This solver is originally for unsteady state simulations. But, I want to use it for steady state simulation. Here, my questions are: whether it is possible to use an unsteady state solver to steady state or not? If possible, then how should i implement the solver code to steady state simulations?
If any one knows the answer of these questions please reply me as soon as possible.

Hi there, Neetu
I have not used twoLiquidMixingFoam, but I have done this for interFoam, with success (i.e. analytical solution and interFoam show the same result). However, the only downside is much longer computational time needed. There is a special time independent interFoam (don't remember the name) which is much much faster.
If you do this, I recommend reduce your time step and Co number in controlDict, to maintain stability, as well as reduce the tolerance values in fvSolution.
The best approach is if you have any simple analytical case in which you can benchmark your time independent approach.
