Patch changing along simulation.
Hi everyone,

Is there a way to change the patches along the simulation using CFX? Im using the 4.3 version and Im intending to manipulate these patches, say replace a wall with a pressure boundary. Ive tried USRTPL, but this routine only changes it in the first iteration, not during the simulation.

Any suggestion Id be appreciate.

Hi Fabio,

I guess you have to stop your simulation, change the patch in your *geo/*fc File and restart the job with the saved *dmp File. If you has to do this several times during your run, write a (Perl or Python or...) script for this task.

Hi Ch.Jung

Thanks very much for your suggestion, but it concerns me the patch changing in a batch simulation, i.e all in one, not dumping files.

Regards, Fabio
