Make CFL condition the upper limit for time steps in explicit transport solver
Following #170 (comment 39668), the CFL condition only serves as upper limit for time steps in an explicit time step scheme. It should not set the actual time step, as originally proposed.
The idea of the CFL condition is to ensure stable conditions for the explicit solve, not to solve in fewer time steps, hence, I consider that suggesting it to the time step controller is the correct approach here.
Alright, I perceived the CFL condition as the only criterion for selecting a time step, following the current implementation. I'm sorry I did not notice that when we ported the solver to the new time step controller
So you propose to increase the time step after every successful step with the
timestepIncreaseFactorand only use the CFL criterion as upper limit? Works for me. As you state, this gives more freedom to the user in terms of time step selection. I'll adjust !179 (merged) accordingly.
When setting the next time step with an explicit time step scheme, the transport solver may choose a time step which advances further than the Richards model has progressed.
TimeStepController in the transport model always stores the final simulation end time. It can thus only ensure that the time step does not propagate past this value. However, in a coupled simulation, the transport model must not "overtake" the Richards model. This is first ensured by "suggesting" the Richards time step to the transport model. But with an explicit time step scheme, we let the CFL condition decide on the time step. In particular, it may choose a larger one than the current one, which is generally fine. But as the
TimeStepController does not store the current Richards model time, at cannot re-adjust the time step to this time.
Steps to reproduce
Produce a simulation where the CFL condition leads to a higher time step than the initial time step of the Richards model. See input files below.
What is the current bug behaviour?
Transport model with explicit time step scheme can choose a time step that overtakes the Richards model, leading to an error thrown by the grid function container.
What is the expected correct behaviour?
Transport model time steps are always limited by the current time of the Richards model.

Ideas how to fix this?
Make the Transport solver store its global simulation end time separately. Add a new method with which the
ModelRichardsTransportCoupling can propagate the Richards model time to the transport
