Default Help in Photon
Posts: n/a
I ve made a simulation (3D flow around Building) and I have the files 3D.phi, 3D.pat and 3D.res.

I order to load this case in Photon, I put this files in D_PHOTON dir and then load Photon and choose to load phi file, where I write: *3D.phi

Photon seems to load the file.

The problem is that I don't know how to see the objects of my simulation in the screen. I only manage to see some vectors or streamlines etc.

What is that xyz file?

What does *.pat and *.res files do?

I want to be able to see my simulation in Photon (like in Phoenics VR) in order to plot some results (streamlines etc).....

Please help....

PHOTON predates VR and so you cannot view the objects in PHOTON. The best you can do is to dispaly a crude outline of the geometry by loading the patgeo file (*.pat file). From the command line of PHOTON you would type USE 3D.PAT and then a crude outline of the geometry should be displayed.

The XYZ file is a file that contains the position vector of the all the grid corner coordinates, and it is only produced by PHOENICS runs with BFC=T (Body-fitted coordinates).

The file 3D.RES is the PHOENICS RESULT file. This contains input data printout, field variable printout, nett source printout for the equations solved, and convergence-behaviour printout in respect of residual errors for the solved equations and changes in dependent variables with sweep at a monitored grid point.
