    Physical Time

    jerry towne

      Dear Flow Simulation Forum,

       

      I do not understand what "physical time" is.  I ran a time dependent simulation using a step function for power.  The table has values up to 3600 seconds.  I also set the "Maximum Physical time" to 3600 seconds in the Calculation Control Options.  My hope was that this would simulate one hour of on/off operation.  However the solver finished at a "Physical time" of only 1400 seconds.  How do I force it to run for the whole 3600 seconds so I can se what the temperature is at that time.

       

      Thank you,

      Jerry
