Default KIVA3VR2 PRE-POST Processors + incompressible flow HELP !!!
Posts: n/a
Hello again, I was wondering if anyone of those wondrous brains out there could enlighten me about the subject matter. Using our IBM computation server remotely via a cr*p Xserver that does not support low-level CGS graphics calls I am therefore unable to use the post-processor supplied with kiva (would I want to anyway ?) So, for the moment I have had to write and modify codes here and there to get usable info concerning my spray (position + vels) and dump all that in tecplot.

This is all a shame since all the info needed for proprocessing is right there in the "plot" file, that I cannot read of course.

So, since we also have starcd, does ANYONE know how to : 1) use starcd's mesh-designing capabilities to create a mesh to export into kiva ? (please don't tell me there is an option in star that allows to export as nastran, patran or ideas ... tried that already, does not work, unless there is a step I do not know about (entirely possible)) 2) use star's pro-proc capabilities to view kiva's "plot" file ?

3) can anyone help with kiva's "lospeed" option? setting it to 1 (for incompressible flow) stops the calculation due to too many temperature equation iterations (my real-time problem only lasts about 1/10 second)

Thanks a lot everyone.... any reply appreciated
