Default forcing a minimum number of time steps
Posts: n/a
I am currently running a DES case with the coupled solver. After a while my simulation is only doing 1 iteration per timestep as it has achieved my residual constraints of 1e-3 or 1e-4.

I was wondering if there was a way to force fluent to complete a minimum number of iterations per time step after it reaches a certain residual convergence, as I am not convinced that is it solving each time step in one iteration.

Possible ideas I had were maybe trying to make the residuals adjust on the fly.

Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.
