Hi,

The other day I ran a simulation with the first-order accurate method. Now I'd like to use those results (it's on the same mesh with the same boundary conditions) to initialize a run with a high-order accurate method.

I've checked the User Guide but I cannot see how to initialize a run with another saved simulation result file.

Can anyone tell me how?

Thanks

If you use the same mesh, you can open the same .dat file and "continue" your simulation with new set up.
If this doesn't work for any reason, you can open your first case, write an .ip file (File > Interpolate > Write data) and then read it for the new one (File > Interpolate > Read).

I am working on CFX and my mesh every time change a bit and i want to use previous result file.

Could you pls help me out...how can i do this?

Best Regards,

You should use a .ip file as suggested by Leonardo. It does not matter if your mesh resolution changes a bit, this interpolation file will interpolate the values at your current nodes. I also had similar issue and I finally resolved it.

Saving velocity field and reading it back for another case

Thank you very much for your reply.

I have one more query.
I want to stope solver by the efficiency smoothness. That means I want to see efficiency curve if its not changes than want to stope my solver.

I found in CFX solver control there is an option interrupt control and i can define efficiency expression. But How can i cake difference of two iteration (smoothness)?

Hope you understand my question.

Regards,

Can't help you on this one... I use Fluent 6.3 (as my university has it). Is efficiency smoothness related to the residuals by any chance?

No smoothness is different from residual RMS is root mean square error. which is based on average value.

Anyways thank you very much for the first part.

When using the dat file from a previous simulation to do a new one with different set up, do I have to initialize solution or directly run the calculation?.

Go to "Calculation Activities" menu
Tick the "Automatically Initialize Solution and Modify Case" option
Click "Edit"
Go to "Initialization Method" tab
Choose "Use Solution Data from File" option
Locate the existing result file with ".dat.gz" extension
Ok and then run calculation as usual.
