 January 14, 2010, 05:08 time step and iterations in steady state problem using transient solver #1 New Member   Join Date: Jun 2009 Posts: 22 Rep Power: 16 I am using the transient solver for a steady state problem. Whether the time step and iterations per time step can effect the final results ? I want to know if I can use a large time step and 1 iteration per time step to reach the steady state.

If u understand what u trying to simulation, u should know how long it takes to have everything reach steady. for example, u got a simulation which happen very fast and ended in 1second, u should try to set ur time step 0.1 sec or less to see what happen in that 1 second. as u can see, its depend on ur simulation. __________________ Herntan, Add Reputation if I am right
