I am using InterFoam for my case to track interface between air and a fluid. I have defined my time step as 0.00001 sec. But in the log file I could not find any where this time step. Could anyone please explain me the calculation process adopted by OpenFoam for solving my case. I am not goot at C++ coding and finding tough time to understand the ternminology. Please look at my log file below:

Courant Number mean: 0.000858798 max: 0.467166
deltaT = 4.54545e-05
Time = 4.54545e-05
MULES: Solving for gamma
Liquid phase volume fraction = 0.00100215 Min(gamma) = 0 Max(gamma) = 1

Hi,

you must disable the adjustTimeStep option in "system/controlDict":
Code:
adjustTimeStep  no;
Otherwise the max courant number limits the time step.
