Default Kiva, Plots of mesh after generation
Posts: n/a
Hello everybody,

In K3PRE.f(the Preprocessor), in input file 'IPREP' there is a variable called 'PLOTMESH' which creates plots of mesh if its value set to be one.I set its value to one but I don't know how I can see its plots, does it require any other subroutine to convert it to tecplot file? or is it possible to see the plot of mesh by the file OTAPE17?

Thank you, Sanaz

Hi Sanaz

u can use general mesh viewer tool for post processing of a kiva simulation

ensight is also a tool for kiva post processing

for using kpost i.e. a default post processor u need to define priorly before kiva simulation the plane which u want and run kiva

bye Ravi Kiran

as ravi kiran told you can use GMV ( general mesh viewer) or ENSIGHT for post processing. I feel ENSIGHT got more features than GMV. GMV is a freeware available at Losalmos official website.

you should translate otape9 data file to ENSIGHT format ( case file)

you can download fortran code for translating otape9 to ensight using this link

all the best
