 March 15, 2005, 18:37 How to calculte \Delta t from CFL? #1 Annie Guest   Posts: n/a Suppose the differential equation is a pure advection equation, \fraction{\partial C}{\partial t} = u \fraction{\partial C}{\partial x} And suppose CFL number is known, how to calculate time step \Delta t? Thanks a lot. Annie

But in Incompressible Flow Problem How we calculate the Time step?.. What is the Physics Behind that?.. Thanks.... Yousuf

The material derivative is a hyperbolic operator which implies a CFL restriction.
