Question run Co for decomposed cases

openfoammaofnepo is on a distinguished road
Dear All,

Does anybody know how to run Co command to calculate the Courant number for the decomposed case? I finished a parallel computation with 16 CPUs, and then there are 16 separate folder for each processors. Now I want to calculate the Courant number for one the time instant, e.g. 1 ms. If I do not want to reconstruct the decomposed case, How can I run Co command? I have checked the Co -help but did not find the information I want. I do think the option -parallel is applicable for my demand.

Thank you very much for your help.

Greetings openfoammaofnepo,

Yes, you should be able to run Co the same way you ran your solver, i.e. using the option "-parallel".
In addition, you can use the "-time" option for running for a single time instance, e.g. with foamJob:
foamJob -s -p Co -time 0.001
Best regards,
