monitorpoint in 5.6

Does anyone know how should I define monitor points in 5.6? according to the manual the mon.point definition window should look like this but in my Pre it looks like that . The boxes for the point coordinates are dead - impossible to enter values

Is it possible to define mon. point via editing the def file (in the solver man. or exporting the ccl and editing it)?

Should I ask for some kind of new patch?

I've already installed several patches, including Pre patch 200307081045

Re: monitorpoint in 5.6
You can add them at runtime from the command line as well.. The section of CCL you require follows:





Option = Cartesian Coordinates

Domain Name = <your domain>

Coord Frame = Coord 0

X = ??? [m]

Y = ??? [m]

Z = ??? [m]

Output Variables List = Velocity, Temperature





For multiple monitor point locations, just copy the MONITOR POINT section, rename and modify as needed..

You can start the run as:

cfx5solve -def your_file.def -ccl file_with_ccl_above


cfx5cmds -def your_file.def -text your_file.ccl -read

add the CCL section above to your_file.ccl and remerge (using -write this time).. And run it as usual from the Solver Manager..

I hope this helps,

Juan Carlos

Re: monitorpoint in 5.6
Hi I know more easy manner. You have to switch on expression and write something (i.e. bleble) and then close window. At next opening window you have active boxes. good luck

Re: monitorpoint in 5.6
This may be a bug of CFX5.6 because I had the same problem. You can just add a new monitorpoint, then delete the old one. Everything will be ok.
