Stationary calculation

A steady-state simulation is a calculation in which no change in the event over time is taken into account. This term is common for simulations of flow, temperature and magnetic fields.


The energy of the component consists only of potential energy.

Here, as an example of a simulation of a steady state at a temperature field, is an application of solid elements with mass flow option.

A stationary event is also spoken of, for example, if there is an oscillation in the structural mechanics which does not change in time. This happening is then independent of which time zero point is chosen according to the principle:

the function X(t) is equal to the function X(t + τ) for all values of τ.

One speaks then also of ergodicity.
