Hello,

I'm running a RANS-SA calculation on a full aircraft but it doesn't seem to converge to acceptable residuals... the residuals go to a minimum before exploding into a neverending enveloppe (oscillatory solution).

I usually cannot see this until I finished the calculations and then the only solution file I have is the one corresponding to the last iteration.

How can I save the files every n iterations? I know I can specify the frequency of solution files writting, but what if I want to keep these files instead of overwritting them?

Doing it "by hand" is not an option since I'm running on a cluster. Is there an option in the configuration file to do this?

Thanks
Oliver

More than focus on the output, I think we need to focus in finding the problem. Could you please give us more details about the problem, grid, and configuration file?

Best,
Francisco

Hello,

Thanks for your reply.

The problem I'm trying to solve is a preliminary approach of a BWB aircraft on cruise configuration.
I cannot put the mesh here since it takes more than 100MB but I'll try to explain the problem (Convergence tendencies, cfg and log files are added at the end).

Physical problem:
height: 12500m
RE: 93e6
Mach: 0.6 (Tried 0.78 but I was recommended to lower the mach to minimize the possibilities of shockwaves).
AoA: 0 (my endgoal is to obtain the polar of the aircraft but I'm already having difficulties at 0 AoA).

The domain consists of half a BWB inside half a sphere.
The centerbody chord of the BWB is 25m
Thus the Farfield is 100 chords away (radius of 2500m centered at the middle of the centerbody chord).

The mesh-grid (ICEMCFD 14.5 -> CGNS) is an unstructured one with the following characteristics:

PARTS:

BWB: maximum size 0.1m; 30 prism layers (6e-6m initial height for y+ < 1); height ratio 1.2; Triangles
FARFIELD: Max size: 512m; Triangles
SYMMETRY: Max size: 512m; Triangles

FLUID: 4 220 332 cells (half of which correspond to the prism layers); Prisms, Pyramids and Tetras

Mesh size after ParMETIS partitionning:

4518314 interior elements including halo cells.
2152016 tetrahedra.
2359192 prisms.
7106 pyramids.
1700759 vertices including ghost points.

---------------------------------------------------
The cfg file is based on the oneraM6 Turbulent Test Case.

I ran the case on SU2 4.1.0 on 48 processors for 8h. It ended before reaching cauchy convergence at 12911 iterations. A figure on the residuals evolution is added as a joint file.

After analysing the residuals I came to the conclusion that

(1) The convergence criteria was not the best (should probably use residual instead of cauchy).
(2) Maybe I shouldn't adimensionalize the pb (so that I work with actual values intead of normalized ones).
(3) The mesh is probably not the best, but I need to know where it fails.
(4) I'm still wondering why the residuals (rho, rho*energy) tend to "explode" after the "minimum residual" has ben reached (around iteration 9500).

Thanks.

Oliver

Saving intermediate solutions without overwriting them is such a useful functionality (Monitoring the flowfield evolution tells a much clearer story than residuals etc.) Is there any easy way to hack the code to implement it? Thanks a lot,

Hey did you find a method to keep the intermediate files without them being over written?
