Running fluent in Batch model
 
Can anyone tell me where I can find all the short commands of Fluent since I need this in order to fluent in batch mode. There should be a list of menues and their short cut in fluent. Thanks in advance P

If you go to www.fluentusers.com, under documentation there's a Text command list. This is also supplied with the documentation that comes with Fluent.

I don't believe it has a list of shortcuts though.

The most common ones of course are:

; read case rc filename.cas ; read data rd filename.dat ; write case wc filename.cas ; write data wd filename.dat ; iterate it ###

Hope this helps, Jason

Thanks a lot I found it. I have another question is it possible to save the residual file for future viewing. P

If you mean the output listing, than you have to use a redirection. For instance when I start my computations in batch mode I type:

fluent 3d -g < commands_file > output.txt

which means that fluent will read the commands from commands_file(read-case-data... solve... write-case-data, ...and so on) and send the output into a file named output.txt, which will contain also the residuals.

I mean is it possible to save residuals in a file when you are in gui or in batch mode. P

You should be able to. If you're going to run the GUI, just drop the -g in the run command. This should still output the residuals and what not to the file you specified.
