Greetings,

I would be grateful if anyone can tell me how to interrupt the simulation, check the current results and then continue the simulation from where it has been interrupted.

Thank you in advance!

Ok. got the answer!

1]hit the space bar to pause the iteration/simulation.
2]click dump button to dump PHI and XYZ file for current sweep
3]click OK to continue the iteration/simulation from the current sweep

to check the results using the dump files
1]run VR viewer
2]Define files to be used for plotting
3]click on No button next to the User-set file names. The button will change to Yes.
4]click Select files button
5]browse for the dump files: q1, phi/phida, xyzda (for BFC grid file), pbcl.dat (for PARSOL file)
6]the dump files can be found in the current working directory folder
7]click OK and OK.
8]Now you can check the results using VR viewer toolbar

i hope this will help anyone who are currently facing the same problem.

Sharing is caring
