This opens up an Execute Commands window. Set Window to 3 and click the Set button.
Saving case and data files This section demonstrates the procedure to save Fluent case and data files at user-specified intervals. Create animation sequences for the nozzle pressure and Mach number contour plots.
Change the display options to include double buffering. For the given example, the Execute Commands for vectors looks like this During the job run, you can use Rescale's live tailing feature by clicking on the vector images already saved to check your simulation results - Pathlines You can setup a new active-window for pathlines only.
In this example, we report 'cl-cylinderwall' vs 'flow-time'. This creates an ' output-archive. In the next few steps, you will play back the animation sequences and examine the results at several time steps after reading in pairs of newly saved case and data files.
But again, decide this for yourself according to the situation you're simulating. In this example, the view is saved as zoom1 In the solution tree on the left, double click on Execute commands under Calculation Activities.You can append the file name with time-step or iterations. This creates an ' output-archive. In this example, the images for velocity contours are saved in PNG format every 5 timesteps to obtain an animation. The third line makes the contour filled and the fourth specifies that banded coloring is not to be used Hence, smooth contours are obtained. If you are running more than a few cores, please request an entire node as above, run using -pshmem and submit the job to parallel queue -q parallel. To create report definitions, click on the Report Definitions under the Solutions tree. Use the -g option to disable the graphical user interface GUI since this isn't required. After you display the mesh, you can zoom in on a certain region manually. Create animation sequences for the nozzle pressure and Mach number contour plots. The JPEG format takes up less memory but gives a lossy compression image. Example journal file simulation. Fluent does not co-exist well with other jobs sharing the same node. The following commands are used in the given example.
However it is more sensible to run Fluent as a non-interactive job. You can get the data for the variables by specifying the time-steps or iterations.
Next highlight cell-zones and select the variable you would like to export.
