How to use local installation of Real Gas libraries
User has been reported the impossibility of proceeding with setting up the Real Gas model with an
error message from the FORTRAN routines as below:
Unable to run fluent 6.020 real gas model.
Attempting to load real gas R143a.fld returns following error:
FORTRAN I/O ERROR 933: END (OR BEGIN) OF FILE WITH NO "END="
It has been reported in the linked cases that the cause is the long name of the
path to the Fluent.Inc. installation directories. One solution would be to use a local
installation of the Real Gas library directory and link it to the original.
However, if linking is not available, the following text (Scheme) commands will
allow to use a local Real Gas library.
In order to initialize and use the real gas model
using the libraries from your home directory, you will
have to enter the following text commands (Scheme)
at the prompt in the Fluent console window:
(rpsetvar 'real-gas/datadir "/REPLACE-YOUR-LOCAL-PATH-HERE/realgas")
(rpsetvar 'real-gas/dataname "lib/R134a.fld")
then respond with yes at the question about enabling the real gas model.
In the above command, REPLACE-YOUR-LOCAL-PATH-HERE will
be replaced with the path to the local directory where you have the libraries.
