CFD_Aspirator is on a distinguished road
How is the Global courant number different for variable time step criteria and Explicit VOF Criteria??

In my transient simulation, for most of the time steps, they both are equal. However, sometimes the explicit VOF criteria Global courant number is more than the other. What does this indicate.

Thanks in advance.
