time step and iteration
 
Hi, I am a beginner in ANSYS FLUENT

May I ask, what is the difference between time step and iteration?

Thanks a lot.

Hi,
the time step is the delta time of the simulation, which corresponds to the real time.
Iteration is a cycle to reach a solution; in fact you can have multiple iterations per time step.

thank you, so if i choose step size as 0.0001 and time step=100 with 100 iterations, at what time should i expect the result to stop, is it simple multiplications? like 100*100=10,000 iterations?
