Default reading case and data files
Riccardo Buccolieri
Posts: n/a
Hello, I have a question. Working under unix system, I want to run Fluent without opening it or, however, I want to close it but while it is iterating in background, so that I can read case and data files when I want with Fluent GUI. Can someone help me?

Have you tried running multiple instances of fluent? I take it that you want to iterate one model but use another fluent window to read in case and data files simualtaneously

Philip is right... just open multiple instances.

If it's a licensing issue that keeps you from running multiple instances, you can start another instance using fluent 3d -post (or fluent 2d -post). This will open fluent without using a license, but it's only good for post-processing a case or setting up a case... you can't iterate with -post.
