Default Problems with text command interface of Fluent

Hello,

I want to use Fluent (6.2) in a parallel environment, starting the job with a script file containing all the necessary commands to set up the case. The problem I encounter is with the initialize-flow command: When I use it the first time, I get a segmentation violation fault, but Fluent continues to work. When I enter the same command again, the initialization takes place without the slightest complaint. If I used a single processor machine only I would not be bothered at all, but when using a parallel machine, this segmentation violation causes the jobs on the other processors to crash. The following is my script file:

---------------------------------

I hope this is not too detailed though ;-)

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Sorry, I have nothing useful to offer in re this problem. But I had to write because it appears you are a rare example of someone writing significant .jou file programs. I do almost all my CFD work this way and wonder what resources you used to get proficient at this, and what tips you have to share. Writing .jou files seems very difficult to me, because of all the experimenting necessary to discover the text prompt questions each line must answer, and especially because the questions are often state-dependant in ways one might not anticipate.

How have you managed? Do you have any resources you'd care to share, beyond the docs available from Fluent? Thanks - and sorry I wasn't any help!

Unfortunately I do it exactly the same way you described. It took me lots of hacking through the TUI menu to find the entries I am used to see in the GUI. What seems most crucial to me is that many settings in the TUI can not be made at the same "menu" position like in the GUI, which is really confusing sometimes. The worst thing is, that there seems to be no appropriate documentation on this scripting stuff. I am sorry that I can be not really helpfull on this!

Cheers, Pascal Anschau.
