misakagan is on a distinguished road

Right now I'm inspecting the code in "continuityErrs.H" and couldn't figure out what deltaT is doing there? Does somebody know why we are multiplying weighted sum of the fluxes with deltaT?


    volScalarField contErr = fvc::div(phi);

    scalar sumLocalContErr = runTime.deltaT().value()*

    scalar globalContErr = runTime.deltaT().value()*
    cumulativeContErr += globalContErr;
