Default Transient display
Posts: n/a
I'm running a transient 2d problem trying to turn a fan on part way through. When I run earth the spot values infront of the fan are behaving correctly. My problem is that when I look at the results in vr viewer I can only display the results for the last time step, rather than all time steps cycling through the z-plane as in the tutorials. Can anybody tell me what I may be doing wrong?

TIA Russ

In version 3.4 when vr viewer loads up you simply select the approiriate timestep for viewing as setup in the output dumping in vr editor.

In version 3.3 I found it easiest to take a copy of the relvant timesteps 8.phi files and the phi file. Then rename the output.phi to phi. Then load up vr-viewer with the new time step as the input for vr-viewer.

There maybe other ways but this was the simplest for me using vr-viwer.

Hope this helps

Thanks leon,

I found my problem was to do with the field dumping setting for the phi files. Running v3.4.

I was solving a steady solution then switching to transient. When i did this phoenics automatically gave a start letter for the phi files, but with this set i couldn't show the z-axis as time in vr viewer. So all i had to do is remove this letter from the setting.
