Dear forum members,

I deal with OpenFOAM for the first time and I try to add a special time stepping method to the interFoam solver (

When I go through the code of interFoam (I use OpenFOAM 7) I cannot figure out where maxAlphaCo actually kicks in?
From my point of view, only maxCo is considered in setDeltaT.H. Can anyone tell me, where maxAlphaCo is considered?

Thank you very much in advance,
