Are Case and Data files enough?
Hi, Everyone,

Recently I have a question to ask costumer service of Fluent. They asked me to send them my case and data file. However, after they received my files, they told me some problems which never existed in my project. Obviously they did not get the same information as I did in my computer.

So, my question is whether only case and data files are enough for other people to read the correct information at other computers?

Thanks for your any suggestion!

yes , coz u cas file contains u mesh and boundary conditions. and ur data file contains ur solution thats why it is enough to send the cas and data file

If you are usign the non-premixed combustion model you would also have to send them your pdf file or if you are using a UDF you also need to send that as well, otherwise just the case and data file is enough.

Had the files been corrupted when you sent them? They should be sent by ftp using binary, not ASCII.

I sent them by email attachment (binary files). Does it cause any problem?

There is a UDF in my case file. When I sent them case and date files, I did not sent dll file. However I sent my source code of UDF. Does missing dll file cause any reading problem?

Actually when I tried to read case and data files without dll file, I will get error information as follows,

Opening library "libudf"...

Error: open_udf_library: The system cannot find the path specified.

Error Object: ()

However, when I use Define->User-Defined->Functions->Compiled to add and compile UDF, everything is OK in my computer.

So, in my opinion,missing dll file should not cause any reading problem. What about your opinion

No, shouldn't do, and u r cocrrect in that as long as you send the source code, they can recompile the UDF and everything should be ok.

Do you know what the error was that they were getting?
