restart for batch mode
Hi all,

I would like to restart my starCD case in batch mode. Nothing has been changed. As it is a transient simulation, I just want to prolong the simulation time. The original 'run for' is 20 s, I need the results for 100 s.

Could you please let me know how I can achieve it for batch mode?

Thanks very much.

Same process as running interactive. Open the model. Setup for a restart to stop at 100sec. Write the prob file. Run. Star will default to restarting from the previous results - i.e. casename.pst. Best to make a copy of that file for safe keeping - until you are sure of what you are doing.

Thank you.

You are right. I have tried that.
