Default Unsteady flow in CCM+
Posts: n/a
Evening all,

Im having some trouble understanding how the unsteady flows are handled in CCM+. How can I stop the simulation and then restart from the initial timestep without clearing the solution.

Also how can I plot different timesteps? Seems I can only view the last timestep.

I was just facing similar problems. If you want to save individual timesteps you have to activate the autosave. You will get individual *.sim files for each timestep. The same should work for restarts. There is the facility to create a plot after each timestep, but if you work with 64 bit Linux (and probably other platforms) you can only do that for the Scene that is currently on your screen (and don't switch to a different workspace while you are running the job!). So, if you want to create different animations of several variables you have to run the simulations several times.

Although CCM+ has a few nice features and is very easy to set up, I decided to do my calculations in Star-CD.
