Re: Loading data
Thanks, this link was really usefull. As I understand from the link though, in order to get lift and drag, I must have FX FY and FZ wall data, which I think I dont because they dont appera in PLIST. Is there anyway of getting them? Or otherwise, is there anything I should before I start running the analysis so that they are stored?

Re: Loading data
Thanks, one last thing though, does this get the data after the processing or should I chose it before running prostar so that i has them at the end?

Re: Loading data
You need to calculate at least one more iteration to get the data.

Re: Loading data
Actually, you can run it re-run it for 0 iterations just to get star to calculate new post data.

Re: Loading data
How can I run an iteration withouth overwriting the existing .pst file?

Re: Loading data
analysis control -> analysis ouput -> backup frequency setting !

$star -restart (above V3.20 and linux)


edit "star.prob" -> at first line and space, 1 -> 2(restart) ->save->exit(bellow v3.20)

good luck

Or you could just make a copy of your post file...

Re: Loading data
When running the analysis, with Shear Force enabled from the start, does it calculate only the shear force or does it calculate everything it normally does as well as the shear force?
