Starting an MFX analysis via command line
Hi Everyone,

I have Ansys v13 x64 bit and seems that this version does not have the MFX-Ansys/CFX simulation environment in Ansys Product Luncher.

My problem is that I did not understand how to run an FSI analysis from the command line.

The Ansys guide says that I need to start ANSYS Master typing the command: "ansys130 -p productname -mfm fieldname -ser port...." but I did not really understand where to type this command.

I am wondering if someone with more experience can explain step by step this part that is not clear to me at all.

Many thanks

Hi Everyone,

I hope I was clear with my question. But does anyone had experience with this problem before? or this is so obvious.

Thanks again

In general posting in the CFX forum gets more responses.
Take a look at section in the CFX Solver Manager documentation. MFX runs are launched using cfx5solve.
