 February 28, 2008, 15:10 convegence accelerated ? #1 amine Guest   Posts: n/a HI i want to know if we can accelerate a convergence ( reduce the iteration number ) without affecting the physical meaning a the results,in this case how?

 March 2, 2008, 18:11 Re: convegence accelerated ? #6 Glenn Horrocks Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, A converged steady state solution will not change no matter how large or small the timestep. The psuedo-time terms go to zero. As Hekler says, you adjust the timestep to get optimal convergence for your simulation. If you are finding the timestep size is changing the solution then you have a problem in your simulation. Glenn Horrocks
