Run fluent in background on NT
Question: What is the command to run fluent in background (without gui) on NT machine?
Answer: On unix machines, the command is
fluent 2d -g < command.jou > excution_message_file &
Here, command.jou is journal file (text commands) of fluent, excution_message_file is output file for monitoring if fluent excution/calculation is running OK.
But This command does not work for NT.
The command to run background job on NT is:
fluent 2d -i elbow1.jou -hidden
To print out the excution message, transcript file needs to be opened in the begining of the jou file and closed before exit fluent:
file start-transcript file.trn put it in the beginning
of the jou file
file stop-trans put these two lines on the end of the jou file.
