hi,
recently, i had simulated some thin wall castings, but always can not be simulated completed.
in flow3d--simulate--,i can see solver 100%,and the terminated time was 0.02s for example, but in flow 3d--analyze,the time frame just 0,013(restart and spatial data available at t= 1.3e-2). so when i render the result,it just display the time from 0 to 0.013, not 0 to 0.02.

below are two erro messages:
a:

no accessible empty cells

someone can help me to resolve the problems, many thanks!

It looks like in case b it ran to completion since the final message is 'there are no accessible empty cells', no?

The error messages you see are not fatal as long as they are occasional. They are common in such complex simulations.

Do you see the die full at t=0.013 seconds? You can define a more frequent output for the restart data to see more dynamics, or use the selected data output.

hi MuxaB,
i maybe explain not clearly of the issue, as your said in case b, it ran to completion,but the result show the casting just filled not 100%. just what i said ,fill completed need 0.02s, simulation was stop at 0.02s,but the display only show fill to 0.13s.

maybe the error messages are not fatal, but i can just analyze from the error messages. in anther casting ,i tried to reduce the minium time step,
it can simulate completede, and fill completed. however ,in others casting ,i also reduced the minium time step , and the error message just prompted one error "Pressure iteration did not converge in Itmax = IMAX," just like case b.

i will try to use the restart fuction .

i think the mesh and the convergence interation are the main reasons to influen the simulation result.

Try this:

Go to the directory where you ran the problem and delete the files starting with g_flsgrf, c_flsgrf and t_flsgrf and flsg000. These are temporary files created by the solver and post-processor to help quickly navigate around the output file flsgrf. Sometimes they become out of sinc with the file and makes parts of it inaccessible.

After deleting them, reopen the flsgrf results file in the GUI. The temporary files will be recreated, but it will take a little time.
