Hi,

I need to run my fluent-simulation in batch mode. I want to write a script to automatically run the simulation and save a plot of Mass-fraction of CO vs Y-axis coordinate as .jpg file. Before writing the shell script I wanted to see the sequence of text commands I need to execute.

So, I tried the /plot>plot... commands but I couldn't find how to access the mass fraction values in the TUI. Also this command only ends up writing the .XY file rather than plotting it on the screen. [ If the plot gets displayed on the screen, I could then use the /display>save-picture command to save the .jpg file ].

Using a macro could have been an option but I don't find an option to activate the macro at the end of computation (only options available were to specify certain time-steps or iterations).

Please help,

Ankur

(for others who might face the same problem)

To access mass fraction of CO via TUI, I typed: solution co

My batch script file

/file/read-case rc1.cas
/file/read-data rc1.dat
/display/set/rendering-options
driver
null
q
/plot
plot-direction
0
-1
0
solution co
yes
11
()
()
q
/display
save-picture
co.jpg
/exit yes
