fluent text command doesnt show all options!
hi all,
I wanted to write a journal file for fluent to do some changes in case and run them. so I write text-user interface commands in a text file and read it as a journal. but now I want to change some turbulence parameters like the wall treatment options in k-e and RSM; but I cant find how can I set these parameters in text UI? in fluent help it is mentioned that there are many options in /define/models/viscous but when I check in fluent window, it doesn't show all options and I can just choose model of turbulence with no other options!
there may be a command to activate all options in text mode, but I wasn't able to find it.
I use fluent 6.3.26x64 in Linux and the case is a 2ddp case.
thank you in advance,

Hi mohamad,
in /define/models/viscous, first enable the turbulence model then for both ke and RSM the near wall treatment is available in /define/models/viscous; I checked that for a 3ddp case; otherwise, you can also use other journal file preparation method; you can use file->write->start journal, then do what ever you want in GUI and at last in file->write->stop journal, terminate that.
