Dear experts :

My number of time steps is 10 second and time step size is 0.1 second. When I finished simulation. I want to see velocity cotour with time. But I can't find next time step of velocity cotour. My problem is ...... how did I see next time step of velocity cotour ?

Very thanks your help !!

hi,

please clarify your problem, you want to be able to view velocity contours for every timestep, not just the last one?

If that is the case, simply save a data file as your simulation is running...go to file, write, autosave...and set every how many iterations you want to save your .DAT file, and give it a directory to save the file too.

hope that helps

AK
