Tip of the week
Ever wondered why you can only select 'mass imbalance' when you want to display contours of your residuals? I did. And now I found out it can be changed. In the cortex window type:


One the questions that will pop up is

"Save cell residuals for post-processing? [no]"

Type "y" and behold, all residuals are now available for postprocessing. I wonder why this is not on by default?

Hi Erwin,

This is very good tip, especially for "debuging" fluid flow cases.

Regards, ff
