Is it possible to continue the iteration process?.....

For example, after, say 20 iterations I saved my data today, can I start from 21st iteration tomorrow and continue the process?

Please let me know if i can do that in Fluent. Thank you very much.

Re: Iterations
If you don't initialize, you can continue.

Re: Iterations
Please could you tell me how I can do that?....First, I will "Read" the case and then "Īterate". I should not "initialize"?

Would it start with the 21st iteration?

Re: Iterations

I tried it and it worked. Now I am able to continue the iteration process from 21st iteration.

I saved the first 20 iterations with the file name "study.dat". If i want to save the data (e.g., 1 to 50 iterations), should I use the same file name 'study.dat'?

or if i overwrite, would I be able to save the data (for 1 to 50 iterations)?

/file read-case-data abc.cas.gz iterate 20 /file write-case-data abc1.cas.gz /file read-case-data abc1.cas.gz iterate 500

Re: Iterations
If you overwrite you will still have 50 iterations data
