Default Variables Definition in CFX Solver 5.6
Posts: n/a
We have many variables defined in variables files used by CFX Solver. Is there a place we can find the definitions and their calculation methodology used by solver. I am pretty new to CFX and am getting confused with various variables in CFX.

I was just looking at the file found in CFX\...\etc\5.6\variables file

Thanks for all your help.

The VARIABLES file is a setup file to control visibility and usability of certain (not all) variables in the CFX-Solver..

Many of those variables are self-explanatory. Some info is in the CEL Variables, Functions and Constant section of the documentation..

Do you have a list (short I hope) that some people here may help you with?

Regards, Juan Carlos

Thanks for your guidance. I am modeling a rotation model and I am new to CFX. Following link should give you a brief idea on it. I am looking at the various parameter definition listed below. All of them appear to be conflicting or confusing to me. If anyone can be kind enough to help me with the definitin of various terms, I shall be very much grateful to them.
