Default loading new mesh in converged solution
Posts: n/a
Hello, how can i load a very similar mesh while using an almost converged solution? I only changed one diameter while keeping the rest. How can i load the new mesh in? When I use file --> read --> case --> ...msh then the iteration starts all over. Can anyone help me! Thanx. Claudia

To use a converged solution on a new mesh you will have to got through the following steps

1. Save your boundary conditions with //file/wbc TUI command

2. Save your converged solution into an interpolation file file->interpolate->write data

3. Open your new mesh and scale it

4. Read back boundary conditions with //file/rbc TUI comand

5. Interpolate the old solution on the new mesh file->interpolate->read data

6. Continue calculation

Note that this approach does not work with the dpm model since dpm sources are not saved in the interpolation file.

Good Luck
