FLUENT Journal File Errors
I'm running a series of FLUENT journal files from MATLAB. Assuming the journal commands are in the form:
For certain shapes FLUENT does not converge due to an ill-defined geometry / solver conditions and an error is displayed in the form:
Warning: An error or interrupt occurred while reading the journal file.
Some commands may not have been completed.
In this case FLUENT becomes 'idle' at the error. Ideally, I need the program to exit when an errors appears. Can you please suggest how I can force FLUENT to exit for such cases / or alternate strategies to handle journal file errors?
Did you get any answer on this, or find an alternate solution?
I am myself running series of batch calculations and it is always irritating to find out after a computation night that the second run crashed... I would like to just skip faulty calculations and continue with the batch run but prove unable to handle fluent errors...
Thank you in advance for any hint...
Thankfully, FLUENT has a built in option for such cases. Under batch options, there is an 'exit on error' option which you need to check. It does what it says: When and if FLUENT hits an error, the program exits and your calculations will continue to run. I use MATLAB to launch all my jobs, so I simply enter a user-defined magnitude for failed simulations so that I know where the problem occured.
See how you go!
This is some quick and efficient answer!
I'm quite ashamed I didn't find it by my own...
Thanks a lot anyway, I will give it a try!
Its interesting to know that a Fluent process can be launched through MATLAB. Can you pls send me an example file to launch the FLUENT through MATLAB.
Thanks in advance
