Hello everyone
I do apologize if the question is dumb, but I can't figure it out and thought I would ask.
How can I tell if the localEuler ddtscheme I use is implicit or explicit? The OpenFOAM guide says that it is implicit/explicit, which seems to indicate that it can be both, but if so, how do I choose? Is it to do with the rDeltaT vector and how it's defined? Or is the scheme semi-implicit?
Thank you so much for your help
