Scale Factor in Radioss

Recommended Posts

Guest

while solving in Radioss, th solver always take 0.9 as the scale factor. And moreover when we impose a timestep, we give 0.9 as scale factor. What is the logic behind this? how do we come up to a value 0.9?


 


time step is l/c , c=speed of light. how speed of light is connected with time step.


 


can you please help me in these

Hi,


 


Please refer to TIme Step topic in reference guide.


 


By default the time step scale factor is set to 0.9 to ensure stability.

Hi,


 


If you are referencing to C in the time step determination equation, it is the speed of the acoustic wave through the material and this varies from material to material.
