Hi everyone,

I want to run an unsteady simulation on an aerofoil but I having troubles. To practice, I have tried to run the example given 'Unsteady NACA0012' on the SU2 website. It runs fine and converges but I would like to understand how to visualise the results. I changed the output format to ParaView. The code outputs 32 vtk files corresponding to each iteration. However, I want to see how the flow and airfoil change with respect to time. I can't seem to do that when I open one of the vtk files.
Does anyone have any advice on how to solve this issue? Basically, I want to be able to press the play button in ParaView and see the flow change around the airfoil.

Thanks

William

When you do file open in Paraview and browse to those files Paraview it should show them with just one name something with ... at the end (and if you expand that you see the 32 files).
Select the name with ... and not one of the individual files.
