Default monitorpoint in 5.6

hi,

Does anyone know how should I define monitor points in 5.6? according to the manual the mon.point definition window should look like this but in my Pre it looks like that . The boxes for the point coordinates are dead - impossible to enter values

Is it possible to define mon. point via editing the def file (in the solver man. or exporting the ccl and editing it)?

Should I ask for some kind of new patch?

I've already installed several patches, including Pre patch 200307081045

You can add them at runtime from the command line as well.. The section of CCL you require follows:

FLOW:

OUTPUT CONTROL:

MONITOR OBJECTS:

MONITOR POINT: joe

Option = Cartesian Coordinates

Domain Name = <your domain>

Coord Frame = Coord 0

X = ??? [m]

Y = ??? [m]

Z = ??? [m]

Output Variables List = Velocity, Temperature

END

END

END

END

For multiple monitor point locations, just copy the MONITOR POINT section, rename and modify as needed..

You can start the run as:

cfx5solve -def your_file.def -ccl file_with_ccl_above

or

cfx5cmds -def your_file.def -text your_file.ccl -read

add the CCL section above to your_file.ccl and remerge (using -write this time).. And run it as usual from the Solver Manager..

I hope this helps,

Juan Carlos

Hi I know more easy manner. You have to switch on expression and write something (i.e. bleble) and then close window. At next opening window you have active boxes. good luck

This may be a bug of CFX5.6 because I had the same problem. You can just add a new monitorpoint, then delete the old one. Everything will be ok.
