input parameters in cfx-post
Is it possible to use Workbench input parameters within CFX-Post? I couldnīt find a solution from the doc. I want to use user-specified parameters from an upstream ICEM-container within CFX-Post.

Best regards,

what the exact meaning of your 'input parameter'?
cfd-post has 'expression' option
you can set parameter there maybe.

just to clarify:

i want to use one of the Parameters from the Workbench2.0 schematic. E.g. when setting up a geometric parameter in DM i want to reference that value in CFX-Post for documentation. So the "input parameter" is a real parameter for DOE or optimization loops in wb2.0 .

so far i did not make any progress....

isnīt there any smart solution to this?
maybe via journals in wb 2.0?

Let me try some pseudo-code:


Grab value of INPUT parameter XY
--> copy it to an expression in CFX-post
--> use the expression in post e.g text for a figure
when writing this --- i will give it a try a dive into the workbench journaling.

Not really what are looking for but maybe a help nevertheless:
Ansys Offers since V14.0 (I think) the so called EKM. It corresponds to a Concurrent Version Systems (CVS) wich is able to manage all of your simulations, to detect differences and to document them in a report.
If you want to know more about it just search onlien for ANSYS EKM.
If you are using academic licenses it shall be included for use in your ansys package.

Old post, but still the same problem. Have you got a solution for this?
Thanks a lot
