Default SU2_DOT_AD: Sensitivity x not found in file

Hello All

I have run a flow and adjoint problem with SU2 v7.0 in the same way i used to with v6.2, and both have converged as expected.

When i go to visualise the adjoint solution in paraview, i can only see the variables: adjoint density, adjoint momentum and adjoint energy in the .vtu file.
So, i ran SU2_DOT_AD in the hopes it would output surface_sensitivity.vtu, however all it does is give the output:
Error in "virtual void CPhysicalGeometry::SetSensitivity(CConfig*)":
Sensitivity x not found in file.
------------------------------ Error Exit -------------------------------

Is there an option in the config file that somehow switched this off or caused the sensitivities to not be saved? i am using a modified version of config-template-v7.cfg

SU2_DOT_AD should read in the mesh sensitivities from the adjoint solution file, not from a visualization file. Could you have a look what's in solution_adj_* ?

Unless you didn't touch the volume output option, they should be included...

Best, Ole

Hi Tom,

the problem was that the sensitivity was not added by default. Should be solved with version 7.0.5 which was just released.
