class main_menu.solve.set.pseudo_time_method(path, service)#

Enters the pseudo time method menu. This menu is only available for cases that use a pressure-based segregated solver (SIMPLE, SIMPLEC, or PISO) or for steady-state cases that use the pressure-based coupled solver or the density-based implicit solver.

advanced_options(*args, **kwargs)#

Enters the advanced options menu, which allows you to enable / disable the pseudo time method for individual equations and define their pseudo time scale factors or under-relaxation factors, respectively. These settings only apply when the global time step formulation is selected.

convergence_acceleration_for_stretched_meshes(*args, **kwargs)#

Enable convergence acceleration for stretched meshes to improve the convergence of the implicit pressure based solver on meshes with high cell stretching.

formulation(*args, **kwargs)#

Enables and sets the pseudo time step size formulation or disables the pseudo time method option.

global_time_step_settings(*args, **kwargs)#

Defines the pseudo time settings for the calculation when the global time step formulation is selected.

local_time_step_settings(*args, **kwargs)#

Defines the pseudo time Courant number when the local time step formulation is selected.

relaxation_bounds(*args, **kwargs)#

Select relaxation bounding scheme for pseudo time method.

relaxation_factors(*args, **kwargs)#

Enters the relaxation factors menu, where you can set the pseudo time explicit relaxation factors for individual equations. These factors only apply when the global time step formulation is selected.

relaxation_method(*args, **kwargs)#

Select relaxation definition for pseudo time method.

verbosity(*args, **kwargs)#

Sets the verbosity of the messages related to the pseudo time method.
