DBG File
 
I use the trimming method for analysis of the engine.

In running the star solver, DBG#.#.smoothed_grid.cel and .vrt files are automatically made in the working directory.

I am wondering the function of these files and the reason to be made the files.

Thank you.

The mesh you made is not very ideal for every timestep, if negative volume cells are presented at some timstep, es-ice will smooth the mesh, and generate some DBG#.#.smoothed_grid.cel and .vrt files.
I always delete these temp files when I find them in the harddisk.
