Cycling a transient run
Hi, I'm a bit new to PHOENICS and I was wondering if someone could help me with a problem I've been having.

I'm trying to model the flow through an inlet manifold and I want to run it for the equivalent of 3 or 4 engine cycles. I can run it for one cycle and I want to use the final conditions from the first run as the initial conditions for the next one.

Field dumping is on for each time step, and I'm told that I have to specify the PHI file as the restart file for the next run. I do that but when I run EARTH, the pressure value remains constant throughout the entire flow field while all other values change. When the VR viewer is run, there appears to be flow through the domain which has been set as a solid. Could it have anything to do with the fact that the manifold is an imported object?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
