control the stored text amount in the program window
dear all
I'm using a macro which print the moment value to the screen after every time step .
when I come back to handle the resulted moment values ,I found that the program had automatically deleted the older values and keep only the results of about47 time steps of overall 720 time steps.
how can I tell fluent to keep all the text had printed to the screen during the calculation process.
thanks in advance.

Use transcript, or write moments to a file.

File/Write.../Start Transcript...

The output text will be written to a transcript file.

Remember to Stop Transcript at the end of the execution.

low and negative torque
dear all
my results shows very low torque and consequently very low efficiency (~0.2 %) and in other cases (different values of TSR) negative average torque value, what does that mean???
