How can I break a fluent calculation?
Hi, I'm simulating an unsteady flow, and I impose some time steps to FLUENT "a priori"; however my goal is to break FLUENT calculation "a posteriori", under some bond.

So my idea is to to write a UDF that under some bond impose to FLUENT to break the calculation, even if I impose "a priori" the number of time steps, but FLUENT can't read the command "exit" in my UDF.
Can you help me?
Thanks in advance.

Did you try the touch-command?

I didnt try it, but maybe it helps.

See section 3.7 Input/Output Macros in UDF manual. It might help...
