The overall principle of ARES allowing to reduce accuracy of a transient calculation in order to get faster to a steady state, proves to be especially relevant in the context of complex industrial reactive transport simulations, where only the steady state of your plant is of interest, while eluding often evaluation through a direct calculation.
