Time Model Choice

Selecting the full implicit time model

CrysMAS can compute pseudo-stationary as well as time-dependent simulations. If you want to change the time model, open the Time Model dialog. The pseudo-stationary time model is the default. Here, you can compute a stationary state. Since you are able to compute the release of latent heat during solidification or the translation of heat flux this model is not called stationary, but pseudo-stationary.

However, if you switch to the full implicit time model, you need to specify the relevant parameters such as start time, end time, number of time steps etc. The variables are computed at every time step between start time and end time.
