Hi,

Use the command line method of starting CFX (cfxsolve -definition 123.def) and stick the simulation sequence in a Windows batch file or Linux/Unix shell script.

Hi Glenn,

Thanks a lot for your reply. I have Project 1. def, Project 2.def,...till Project 10.def. I have never tried command line before. If you can provide me some examples to do that, that would be great!

Many thanks in advance!

Hi Raj, Try this C:\progra~1\ansysi~1\v110\cfx\bin\cfx5solve -def D:\Project1.def C:\progra~1\ansysi~1\v110\cfx\bin\cfx5solve -def D:\Project2.def etc... where C:\progra~1... is software installed location and D:\Project1.def is .def file location

If you launch the command line from the CFX Launcher, the solver will already be in the path.

How do your runs differ? Are there changes in geometry, boundary conditions, etc?

Hi CycLone,

I need to solve 5 10 10 definition files sequentially in the night time. So, pls let me know if there are any other methods.

Thanks a lot!

What Glenn has proposed will work; just create a .bat file or shell script that launches one after the other (one solve command per line will do it).

If the cases differ by parametric changes in geometry or operating conditions, you can also use DesignXplorer to set up a parametric analysis and specify the parameters you are interested in running. You don't need a license for DesignXplorer to do this, but you will need to run the entire thing within Workbench.

So, what is it you are varying?

Hi CycLone,

Thanks for your helps. Yes, I do parametric changes. I will try as you suggested.

Thanks again!
