Can someone please help me with creating a field function to calculate the Courant Number for 3D model? I am new to CFD and I am not sure how to set it up.

Thanks!

May I ask you, why do you need the courant number?

I wanted to see how the Courant number is changing with the mesh size and time step size. But I found that you can create a scalar scene and choose convective Courant number.
