I'm trying to solve an air-conditioning problem (temperature and velocity air field) I'm trying with SimpleFoam solver.

In controlDict file what does it mean "deltaT" parameter? Is there any detailed guide/manual/description?

Thanks.

It has no meaning in the simpleFoam class of applications, as it is a steady state solver. Instead, it is used as an alias for the iterator, so that the standard looping functions of the OpenFOAM framework can be used. Good practice would be to set deltaT to one there.
