Default drag force output file on parallel computing
Posts: n/a
Hello all

I've solved my transient problem on cluster using fluent for some iterations. It gave the resonable result.

Then I stop process and set it writing drag force output file before continue running. (solve/monitor/force and set file name)

After that Fluent reported error like "sopenoutputfile: unable to open file for output" and it stop running the process itself.

I never experience this problem when running on single cpu. Anybody who know how to fix this problem please suggest me.

Thank very much you in advance.

I have the same problem. I run my file in fluent by using UNIX, and save velocity outputs. Then I transfer the case and data file to other computer. I try to run it again by reading case file and then by case and data and both times I face the error:
Error: sopenoutputfile: unable to open file for output
Error Object: "ux12-048.out"
I would be so thankful if one could help me.

Hi friends
You can try it this way
First write case and data files in parallel.
Then open a serial fluent ,load that case and data files.
Then export them to your desired format.
I don't know why that problem is ha penning.
