Anna Tian is on a distinguished road

I have several cases to run by Fluent-solver during the night. But I have only one Fluent license. So I'd like to let the next case simulation started automatically after the previous one finished. In this way I won't need to always get up to start the simulation manually. May I ask how to set that?

By the way, since each of the simulation need to be started from different specific initial solution, workbench may not be good at doing this.
Best regards,

blackmask will become famous soon enough
A shell script (*nix) or batch file (win*) would do your job. The file contains a series of command like
fluent 2ddp -g -i your_journal_file_name.jou > your_log_file 2>&1

You may need to set the proper environment for running fluent at the beginning of your script/batch file.
