R.e SimpleFoam
 
just wondering if anyone can help me, why does simpleFoam have a time input if it is a steady state solver, I'm running simulations for an academic paper and Im trying to understand how many iterations i'm running the simulation for
any help would gretaly appreciated

Thanks

simpleFoam is a steady state solver, that is right. Usually the timeStep is set to 1, swo it will work as an iteration counter.

Also, it is much more stable to give it a ddt term, and then advance the solution with a "fake time" until this ddt term reaches zero.
