Hi everyone.

Im a bit frustrated with the unsteady solver. I am running a simulation of flow over a turbine and have the following settings;

time step size: 0.01 no of time steps: 40 max iterations per time step: 5

After every 5 iterations, an image of the iso-surface i defined to show a velocity profile over the turbine flashes up and the image file goes into my hard drive. On checking the first 20-odd profiles i realised that nothing is actually changing on there a reason for this?
