Writing the last iteration for steady state simulations

Posted August 17, 2016 at 05:09 by Ramwi

Ok, I have a very bad memory and furthermore, I did not find the solution to the bellow described problem right away. So, I will use this place to store the solution for future use.

Note: The proposed approach might be overcomplicated. If it is so, please let me know what is the "proper way".

Problem description: You run a steady state simulation (e.g. simpleFOAM) and you control the endTime (number of iterations) via the residualControl. Thus, the number of iterations...

11th community OpenFOAM Workshop: finally managed to attend one of these! Part 1

This brief note describes this feature and gives a couple examples. Check out the complete blog below with some advanced post-processed animations.
