Hello folks,

I am gonna put here the steps to run in batch mode to share the knowledge. I have run a FSI simulation in batch mode with the following commands:

nohup /usr/ansys_inc/v171/aisol/.workbench -cmd -inputFile coupling.sci &

sleep 3
_PORT=`cat scServer.scs | grep  -o '[0-9]\+@' | grep -o '[0-9]\+'`
printf "Port is $_PORT\n"

nohup /usr/ansys_inc/v171/ansys/bin/ansys171 -b -i structural.dat -scport $_PORT -schost localhost -scname "Solution" -o ANSYS.out -np 6 &
nohup /usr/ansys_inc/v171/fluent/bin/fluent 3ddp -g -t8  -scname="Solution 1" -schost=localhost -scport=$_PORT -i fluidFlow.jou  > Fluent.out &
After exporting the following files:
coupling.sci, fluidFlow.cas, structural.dat
using respectively System Coupling, Fluent and Mechanical. I have created also the following file (also necessary for fluent):

file/start-transcript "fluidFlow.trn"
file set-batch-options , yes ,
wcd FluentRestart.cas.gz
My problem is that I don't know how to read the output files from the workbench environment so that I can check the results. Does anybody know? Is it possible to write a bash script for it?

Obs.: I am using Ansys 17.1

I'm not sure if this is the official way, but what works for me is importing the results back in the respective solvers in workbench.
Thus, in workbench open mechanical, select solution in the tree, go to tools, and load the result files (file.rxxx)

for fluent, open fluent, go to solution files, recover missing solutions, and import your files, or cfdpost.

Or if you didn't use shell elements in your structural part, you can also view both results at the same time in cfdpost.

If you found another solution, could you post it here?

Unfortunately I could not find another way, being different then the one you said. And when I try to use the "recover missing solutions" approach, I simply cannot put all the files at once. VERY FRUSTRATING!
