Hi Akin,

Place all the ".def" files in separate directories (eg. directory1, directory2, etc.). Create a text file similar to the one below. Make the text file executable (use command "chmod 755 textfile"). Run the file by typing it's name.

cd directory1 nohup cfx5solve -batch -def run1.def cd ..

cd directory2 nohup cfx5solve -batch -def run2.def cd ..

cd directory3 nohup cfx5solve -batch -def run3.def cd ..


Couldn't be easier...

Cheers

Paul

P.S Don't forget CFX must be included in your path.

Hi Mahmoud,

You can use the additional -ini statement to restart from an old .res file. For example:

cd directory1 nohup cfx5solve -batch -def run1.def -ini oldfile1.res cd ..

cd directory2 nohup cfx5solve -batch -def run2.def -ini oldfile1.res cd ..

cd directory3 nohup cfx5solve -batch -def run3.def -ini oldfile1.res cd ..


This and other options (parallel running etc.) can all be found in the solver manual under "running CFX from the command line".

Cheers

Paul

What command would you add to make each run a local parallel run?

Thanks,

Pablo

For local parallel only use the "-par-local" argument.

ie

cfx5solve -batch -def run1.def -ini -oldrun.res -par-local

Cheers

You have not defined the initial condition arguement correctly. It should be -initial AxialXXX.res or something like that - check the documentation to be sure.
