Specifies time step acceleration, maximum number of time steps, etc. An example is given below:
TIMESTEPPER FLOW TS_ACCELERATION 8 MAX_STEPS 10000 MAX_TS_CUTS 5 NUM_STEPS_AFTER_CUT 5 DT_FACTOR <tfact_1,.., tfact_i, ..., tfact_n> END
The keywords above have the following meanings:
The word after
TIMESTEPPER at the start of this card can be either FLOW or TRANSPORT. For TOIL_IMS, GAS_WATER, BLACK_OIL, TODD_LONGSTAFF and SOLVENT_TL, this must be FLOW.
Takes as input an integer, indexing time step acceleration ramp. This is an advanced feature, setup by RESERVOIR_DEFAULTS.
Takes as input an integer, representing the maximum time step after which the simulation will be terminated.
Takes as input and integer, representing the maximum number of consecutive time step cuts before the simulation is terminated with plot of the current solution printed to a XXX_cut_to_failure.tec file for debugging.
Takes as input a sequence of integers. These become the array of floating point numbers of tfac array. Advanced feature. Almost never used outsiede of debuggging.
