Re: How to display an additional field variable?

Dear Peter, I could reply your error with a different, but similar case. When I drop the SaveMaterials (Exec Solver = Never), the run survives. Can you confirm that this is also the case for you? I checked with a debugger, but actually did not find an issue directly in SaveMaterials. Will try to hav...

Re: communication between partitions in parallel

Hi Lionel, in parallel computing communication (i.e., utilizing the MPI calls) is the main cause of performance limits. The less your parallel tasks have to talk to each other, the more they can spend on doing the number-crunching. Especially if you use blocking communication (when often CPU's are i...

Re: Modelling turbulent flow

Martijn, I am astonished that you get convergence at all, especially with the higher Re-numbers. perhaps you could take 2 measures: 1) switch in a turbulence model (k-epsilon, for instance) 2) try to resolve (I do not know how fine your mesh is now) finer around the cylinders And finally, some effec...

Re: derivative wrt normal vector

Hi Suren, (i) In the NS-source code I can see an internal subroutine LCondensate (for nb > 0) ... what does that do actually? I have coded without this... but got a good result in case of Newtonian fluid (flow law exponent n =1)... including this subroutine doesn't affect/improve the outcomes... Thi...
