Journal command to patch values
 
Hi,

I would like to run fluent in batch mode, therefore I have to write the journal file, however, I could not find journal command to patch values to particular cells

where is the corresponding command to the following panel

solve->initialize->patch

I am using VOF model.

thanks

The solve initialize set-default mp-1 1 will set the value for the whole domain. it is suppose to set the value for the second volume.

You have to use a scheme tool inside your journal file. You can get it at www.fluentusers.com It worked for me.

Hi, Just a suggestion: don't you think patching your values through the GUI - save the .dat file - and then run fluent in a batch mode by calling this .dat file could be an alternative to your problem.

Thanks, I just realised this maybe a better option. Just thought that the GUI panel should have a text command.Fluent recorded journal file still requires the GUI to run!

Hi, excuse me what do you mean by 'Fluent recorded journal file still requires the GUI to run' ? . You can use fluent and your journal file from a shell script command. However concerning the set-up ( choice of model, parameter ect ect ) obviously the GUI is more than helpful :). regards thomas

Journal files automatically saved by Fluent contain commands that operate directly on the GUI, like

(cx-do-gui cx-activate-item "MenuBar*WriteSubMenu*Stop Journal")

therefor GUI needs to be activated to use this file.

Is this the case?

Re: Journal command to patch values
 
As far as I know, using fluent batch means running fluent without using the Graphic User Interface. In that case you use this command: fluent 2/3d -g <Journal-name>& results.txt Now about a journal file automatically generated by fluent, I think you know more than me about this so I won't get into that field wihtout knowing. But I also know that a journal file can effectively be launched from the GUI, but in that case you are not in batch mode anymore. thomas

Re: Journal command to patch values
 
greetings,

the latest released version of FLUENT, v6.1.22, has the "patch" command in the text-user interface (tui) under

solve/patch

this tui command was missing in earlier versions.

regards, eric.
