Help: view factors file
 
Hello,

I'm running an analysis with radiative heat exchange. I've already created the .vfs file for view factors, but when I do a standard restart Star doesn't ask to me if I want to resume the file and it starts to create the file another time.

Why this?

In the past it was all right.

Thank you very much

Giovanni

If it is a run from scratch: View factor file does not exist: STAR-CD calculates and writes view factors View factor file exists: STAR-CD will ask question whether to resume or recalculate view factors

If it is a restart run: View factor file does not exist: STAR-CD calculates and writes view factors View factor file exists: STAR-CD resumes view factors

If you need to recalculate view factors during restart run, simply delete the *.vfs file.

Thank you Michael,

I know that if it is a restart and View factor file exists, STAR-CD resumes view factors.

But now View factor file exists , it is a restart run and Star does not resume the file!!!

It is very strange, isn't it?
