Validation case 3 - Maximum Time Step

The HP1 code incorporates modules simulating
(1) transient water flow in variably-saturated media,
(2) transport of multiple components, and
(3) mixed equilibrium/kinetic geochemical reactions.

Validation case 3 - Maximum Time Step

Post by Dimitar » Wed Jun 18, 2008 7:39 am

Hello,
I am working on almost the similar simulation like Verification Problem 3 from the HP 1 Manual (transport of linearly and nonlinearly adsorbing contaminant). I used several values in the Maximum Time Step option and it seems that with decreasing the value the final results become more accurate. Is there an exact or practical rule what the limit of this value could be?

Many thanks,
Dimitar
