Hello, I am trying to use the cfx 12 built in variables Mesh Velocity X, Y, Z. What happens is that when i define a run, i get an error message saying that these variables are unavailable. Is this some kind of bug? How can i get through that?

Hi.

There was a little trick in CFX 11.0 that might help you in CFX 12.

I needed to calculate some CEL using Slip Reynolds Number in solver and had the same error.

Then, I opened the VARIABLES files (inside cfx/etc folder) and included the string
GENERAL AVAILABILITY = CEL in the strings of that variable.

Then, I could use the variable while running.

If it works under CFX 12, please let me know.

Good luck!

Hello,

there is a string in that variable which looks like this
General Availability = RESULTS, MONITOR, CEL, TRANSIENT STATISTICS

which means that the CEL is included. However there is some more info in there in which there is an interesting point. They have changed the variables in v.12 from mesh velocity u,v,w (v.11) to mesh velocity x,y,z. this is the string

Component Short Names = \
meshvel u, \
meshvel v, \
meshvel w
Component Long Names = \
Mesh Velocity X, \
Mesh Velocity Y, \
Mesh Velocity Z
Old Component Long Names = \
Mesh Velocity u, \
Mesh Velocity v, \
Mesh Velocity w

what is funny is that the short names are kept as u,v,w and at the same time the new long names are in x,y,z. Do you reckon there is something bizarre here?
