 May 14, 2004, 18:20 how to check absolute velocity values #1 gaurav Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I am intrested in checking the absolute velocity values (or other parameters of interest) for each/different iteration . Can anybody help me , how to get these absolute velocity values for two successive iterations in fluent? Can we save these values before convergence/divergence is achieved. Thanks in advance for the solution !!! Regards Gaurav

Go to XY plot and write values of velocity (or any property of interest) to a file. 2) Set number of iterations to 1 and iterate. 3) write values of velocity to another file. You can compare these by using XY plot in Fluent. You can alo process the data in MS Excel or any other numerical processing program. Hope this addresses your requirement. Regards Prasad

 May 17, 2004, 14:38 Re: how to check absolute velocity values #5 gaurav Guest   Posts: n/a thanks Prasad for the response.yea this can be one way of doing it.But i wanted to know if i can print velocity value or any other varaible of interest on fluent command window along with the residual values for each iteration.. Do u know about it if i can set it somehow in fluent ? Regards-Gaurav

Select appropriate directory. 2) Choose surface (preferably a line) and property of interest on Y-axis. 3) You will have display of the plot which will be refreshed after every iteration. This frequency is to be set in Animation dialogue box. Regards Prasad
