Fluent 12.1 Journal File
Hi to everyone,
I am having a problem with Fluent 12.1 running a Journal I've written. Firstly, although i am putting the cas file and journal on the desktop when i open Fluent to run the journal file it is giving me an error that it is not finding the cas file. Secondly, I would like it to give me the velocity magnitude contours but it is giving me only the residual plots and in grey scale not color as i write in the command. I 've written the commands i used in the journal file for your consideration....maybe i am doing something wrong so i would appreciate it if someone could help me!

Journal File:

/file/read-case fluent1


/file/auto-save/retain-most-recent-files yes



/display/contours velocity-magnitude

/display/contours/filled-contours yes

/display/contours/global-range yes




/display/save-picture velocity1

/file/write-case-data fluent1_end

I am confused: if it is not opening your case, how can it run??
You have to put your journal and case files in the directory where you start Fluent otherwise Fluent isn't going to find the case.
