Additional Command Language -in Workbench!
 
Good day to everyone.
I have a very simple question and unfortunately I did not find any help in the guides or in the customer portal.
I have some simulations that runs perfectly till the convergence. Unfortunately they work only if I use some Additional Command Language (in the Solver, in the Custom solver options I just use the command -ccl in the solver arguments).
My problem comes when I want to run some simulation with workbench ( I would ike to solve some GDO problem). If I try to run something with workbench, i don't have the possibility to use the ccl command and the simulations explode.
Is there a possibility to use Additional Command Language -ccl in workbench? Thanks.
If this question was already answered, the moderator can delete the topic.

p.s. I know I can run with batch mode, but I really would like to use the Workbench.

Turn on beta features in WB and then right-click and look at the Properties of the Solution cell in the project schematic.

Hello Stumpy!

You mean that with CFX Beta it should work?

Elvira_Coot July 11, 2011 10:34

I am using Workbench 13 SP2.
Beta are turned on (Tools, options, appearance,display, beta feature).
But when I try to edit the solution cell, I don't even see the fenster "solver arguments".
With or without beta.

If you right-click on the Solution cell in the project then select "Properties", you should see a "Solver Arguments" field where you can enter a full path and name to the CCL file.

Thank you
It still does not work.
It does not even start,

I sent it to the support, but I suppose I will get some answers in months..

stumpy July 12, 2011 08:49

Did you use a full path to the ccl file?

Elvira_Coot July 12, 2011 09:04

In solver Arguments I wrote:
-ccl C:\Documents...\rules.ccl
I wrote the full path.
This is the message I got:

I have now a doubt..What do you mean with "full path"?
Thanks for your help

stumpy July 12, 2011 11:29

By full path I just meant what you had, C:/etc/etc/file.ccl. So you don't get that error when the ccl file is not set? And there's no .out file created? If so, them I'm afraid I'm out of ideas :-(

Elvira_Coot July 12, 2011 11:37

without ccl file the simulation starts, but then it diverges.
With the rules on the solver manager the workbench does not start. I don't even get an out file.


I tried everthing, that's pity.
I think I have to give up the idea of using this workbench.
I can't use ccl, to use Icem is also quite difficult if I wanna perform GDO...I'm starting to think that workbench is not the ideal software if you wanna do some real simulation and not the flow in a static mixer. A good argument for the next ansys meeting.

That's it.
Thanks for your help

Elvira_Coot July 14, 2011 01:32

Is there something in the documentation that can help me?
I am lost in the customer portal...
