use batch mode to run an unsteady case
Hi !
I would like to use batch mode to run an unsteady case.
I understand how it work for a steady case reading the example (
; Read case file
rc fluent.cas
; Initialize the solution
; Calculate 200 iterations
it 200
; Write data file
wd example200.dat

But for a unsteady case, you cant use "it" and I've looked in the manual and I didn't find the command.
Could somebody help please.

Note that I would like to run a case where I have 1800 time steps of 10s each with 50 iterations per time step.
Thank you very much !

dti n_step n_iter_per_step, for example:
dti 10000 20

Thank you very much !
Do I need to indicate a time step ? How ?

Do you mean time step size??? The value of time step size can be set in GUI before running in batch mode. You can set time step size via journal as well, just search.

I tried the dti command. My computer write :
> invalid command [dti]

I don't understand. :confused:
Anyways thank you for your help.
