i want to know values of properties at for example 3 last iterations to figure out what values at what points are diverged.how to do that?

Hi,
You should change the writeControl to timeStep and writeInterval to 1. So the results will be written in each timeStep and you can see your variable matrices in your directory folder.

Cheers
Ali

hi ali
Thanks for good hint.
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 ?

after the run when a divergence took place i want to know what value at what cell maked the problem.at each of folders under each property like p or T there is a column of cell values.how can i figure out a false result(like T=20Kelvin thats very low and is incorrect) is relevant to which cell?

By my current knowledge about Openfoam you have two choices:
1- tracing the point with false results visually in paraFoam and the using Probe Location filter to get the coordinates of the point.
2- using the disscussion done in the 1st four posts of the following thread to get the point's coordinates(recommended):
Convert coordinate system in OpenFOAM

Ali

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.
Regards, Ali
