I am giving a short presentation on some of the CFX utlities and was hoping to get a few more examples than I currently have.
By utlities, I mean things like:
cfx5dfile
cfx5pre/post -line / -batch

Currently, I am running through examples of creating .def files and launching jobs using both cfx5pre -batch <sessionfile> and by using cfx5gtmconv my.cfx5 my.def my.ccl.

I also have a quick section on post-processing multiple files using cfx5post -batch <sessionfile>, as well as a section on extracting monitor data using cfx5dfile.

I was hoping for a couple more examples, or maybe even another utility that I've not heard of. It seems as though the documentation for these things isn't great. Anyways, if you have a great script that wouldn't mind sharing, I'd love to see it.

Thanks,

These functions are all explained in the CFX documentation, with lots of examples.

Do you have a section number? I have found the documentation on these to be completely unimpressive. The section on power syntax contains I believe 2 examples, one of which is trivial, and the other simply includes a for loop. I've found the man pages more helpful than the documentation.

I'm not asking anyone to do research for me, I was just hoping that if anyone had some clever scripts, they'd be willing to share.

Cheers,

Try section 2.5, "Starting ANSYS CFX Components from the Command Line".

That section is basically a link to each commands help file. It has zero examples.

The only relatively decent section I found was Post User's Guide > Command Action / Power Syntax. They are still short on examples IMHO.

Either way, thanks for the help. I'll just do what I can.
