Hello,

I have downloaded and installed SU2 3.0, 64 bit binary for Windows 7 (serial version). Initially SU2 would not run due to lack of msvcr100.dll and tecio.dll . I have solved these issues and tried to run the NACA0012 aerofoil test case. The code appears to run, however it does not generate the output files: flow.plt or flow.vtk, surface_flow.plt or surface_flow.vtk irrespective of whether I choose Tecplot or Paraview output file option in the inv_NACA0012.cfg file. I set up a path so that I could run SU2 from a working directory where the grid and *.cfg files are. Is there a default location for the Tecplot or Paraview output files, or should they appear in the working directory? I did try to find them using a search, but this was not successful.

I don't see anyone else having a similar problem, so it may be that I have done something daft... Apologies if this is the case, but hoping someone might have some suggestions. I'm very much looking forward to learning to use SU2.

Kind Regards,

Vartan

In order to try and isolate the source of the problem I downloaded and installed SU2_EDU V1.1 Windows 64 bit version and when run it does indeed produce the flow.vtk and surface_flow.vtk files.

Could you post your config file? Specifically the RESTART_FLOW_FILENAME and OUTPUT_FORMAT

Thanks

I have the same problem as Vartan. My config file reads as follows:

%Output file format (PARAVIEW, TECPLOT)
OUTPUT_FORMAT= TECPLOT

% Output file restart flow
RESTART_FLOW_FILENAME= restart_flow.dat

When i run the code, I only get the history.plt file.
The extension of the flow and surface_flow files I get is .dat (flow.dat) and .dat and.csv (surface_flow.dat, surface_flow.csv) respectively.

Any help is welcome,

Z
