KIVA timesteps
Hello Everybody, I have a doubt in KIVA. I have defined ncaspec value to be 45 and gave the cafin value as -57.0 degrees. When I run the code the max output I am getting is for 33 timesteps and simulation stops at crank angle of -101.0. The nclast value is 9999 and when I try to increase this value it takes onle the first four digits. So how can I simulate the code for more time steps. Thanks in advance

hi sridhar

u can simulate for more times steps(cycles) increasing nclast. in itape5 give it as


i mean don't leave any blankspace between nclast and the cycle value. hope it will work ....all the best
