Parametric study and time dependent parameter monitoring
I'm running a transient FLUENT simulation using the WorkBench framework. The output paramater that is important to me is the total heat flux comming through a particular surface of my model.
To monitor this heat flux i've used the "Surface monitors" function. This function create a *.out file in the fluent directory with the heat flux at each time step. I'm very happy with that.
The problem is that now that my model is well parametered i want to run a parametric study on it, by changing the heat conduction coefficient of the material for instance.
To do that i use the "Design Points" option in Workbench. First thing, when i define as an output parameter the heat flux that i want, using "Results/Reports/Fluxes..." what i get in Workbench is only the value at the last time step, wich is useless for me. Anyway i was like "at least i have my *.out files in the Dp0, Dp1 ... directories". But strangely these files are empty....
So my question is : How do i get as an output parameter of my parametric study a time dependent variable ?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Hello again everybody.
I'm trying to overcome this issue by executing FLUENT in Batch mode. That way i can perform loops etc...
I am completely new to this batch mode but it seems promising. My problem now is that i can't initialize my temperature field :
My script :
