Default floating point precision
Posts: n/a
Hi CFX users

I wanna increase floating point precision in CFX post. I wanna have more decimal places to my pressure values. How can I do that? If my question is not clear, please let me know I will try to elaborate. Thanks

Post always uses double precision. Whether your pressure is in single or double precision depends on whether you ran the solver in single or double precision.

To run the solver in double precision, go to the Solver tab on the launch panel in the Solver Manager and check "double". From the command-line add '-double'.
