forsumit is an unknown quantity at this point
Dear All,

This is kind of very basic question more to do with CFD, I was wondering if all the time discretization scheme in OpenFOAM are implicit, why do I still see Courant number being calculated when I use solvers like pisoFoam. Implicit schemes are suppose to be unconditionally stable right??
