Question about running the simulation automatically one after another by CFX-solver
 
Hi,

I have several cases to run by CFX-solver during the night. But I have only one CFX license. So I'd like to let the next case simulation started automatically after the previous one finished. In this way I won't need to always get up to start the simulation manually. May I ask how to set that?

With a script file.

cfx5solve -def run1.def
cfx5solve -def run2.def
cfx5solve -def run3.def
...etc...

Or if you are using a batch scheduling system then just launch them and the system will queue them up... if it is set up correctly. For instance PBS needs some customisation so it queues based on license availability rather than processor availability (talk to the PBS vendors for how to do this).

I think you can do it by defining case configuration in cfx pre.
