3D Residuals visualisation in ParaView?
 
Is it possible to view cell/volume residuals within ParaView for SU2 simulations? I want to see which areas of my geometry have the highest residual values so I can refine the grid in that region.

I have ran SU2_SOL for my most recent simulation, opened the flow.vtk file in ParaView, and only the following options are available:

Density
Energy
Heat_flux
Lam_Viscosity
Mach
Momentum
Pressure
Pressure_Coeff
Skin_f_Coeff
Temp


Thanks

You need to ask for the residual output.
VOLUME_OUTPUT= PRIMITIVE, RESIDUAL

I'm getting an invalid option name for that unfortunately, I'm using SU2 v6.2.0



I've tried VOLUME_OUTPUT = RESIDUAL as well and it returns the same




Solved: WRT_RESIDUAL= YES

Hello,


Good to know the issue was solved. The VOLUME_OUTPUT option is available from v7 onwards.


Cheers.
