So the results will be written in each timeStep and you can see your variable matrices in your directory folder. Cheers Ali

But i should do it at times near the occurance of diverging otherwise folders will grow too many. Do you know how i can find the location of point that a number in the column of results refer to ?

 January 27, 2013, 07:49 #9 Member   Ali Khalifesoltani Join Date: Mar 2011 Location: Esfahan, Iran Posts: 52 Rep Power: 6 It is not so complicated, just follow the instruction below: The probe filter can be used to query a dataset for point or cell data. Options for the probe filter are: Show Point button is used to show where the center of the sphere is for generating the probe points. Center on bounds will place the sphere center at the center of the dataset's bounds. The sphere center can either be set in the properties tab of the object inspector or in the 3D view with the mouse cursor. To choose a new point in the 3D view window, press P and then click on the desired point. Note that the Show Point option must be selected in order to activate the point widget.
