Path Lines Across Sliding Interfaces
 
I can't get Fluent (5.2.3) to display path-lines across sliding interfaces. Has anyone else managed to do this? Is it even possible in Fluent? All my path-lines just end when they reach a sliding interface. The problem does not affect all general interfaces, only those which are sliding.

Responding to myself here... I found a solution. Version 5.1.1 seems to plot path-lines also across sliding interfaces. Funny enough the simulation only works in 5.2.3.

Jonas,

Apology for your inconveninece and quite possibly for others. But are you saying that 5.3 doesn't work either ?

Sung-Eun, thanks for you reply. I just tried it in 5.3.18. It works on Linux, nice! However, unfortunately we do post-processing on HP-UX 10.20, and on this platfrom 5.3.18 gives a "floating point exception" when loading the .dat file, so I can't try it there. I have reported this to Fluent Europe.

Jonas,

Sorry for the inconvenience. I checked our database and it's been logged in as a "critical" defect. We'll fix it.
