Dear All,

I want to know how to put only the final data for continuing the program instead of using the previous result file.

I kept using the result file but the longer the time taken to conclude, the more the number of iteration.

Hope someone can help me.

Thanks a lot

Do you mean to restart the simulation with a previous result as initial flow field, and you want the iteration history to also restart from 0?
In CFX 11, you should set the solve to start with an option of "interpolation". This will make the iteration history curve start from step 0 again. Otherwise the solver will use mesh and boundary settings from the old result file.
In CFX 12, there's an option of "continue iteration hisory" when you specify the initialization result file. And you can specify which mesh will be used, the solver input(def) or the result file.

Thanks a lot Tom,

I want to do so.
Now I am trying it.
