# Q. How does one specify a swirl velocity component at a CFX Inlet?A.To specify swirl at an inlet, one can make a local cylindrical coordinate system with its center at the center of the inlet. The Z axis of this coordinate system should be normal to the boundary surface. In the basic settings of the inlet, make sure of the reference to this new coordinate system. Then in boundary details, the velocity component in the Z direction will determine the mass flow. The radial component will most likely be zero.Create an expression for the azimuthal (theta) component if the swirl velocity is a function of the distance from the center of the inlet. This will use the variable "r" which is measured from the Axial direction (the Z axis) in the new coordinate system.The setup provides additional flexibility in setting the axes. Therefore one must, in Analysis Details, go to the Axis Definition and as the option choose Coordinate system. For the Rotation axis choose the third direction (i.e. "Coord 1.3").

# SYMPTOM: When using the report functionality of CFX Post, the names of chemical species (such as CH4) which should be in upper case are written in lower case (ch4).PROBLEM:This is due to incorrect parsing of these names.

# SYMPTOM: A chart with multiple chart lines takes a long time to create because every time a chart line is added, CFX-Post re-reads all of the transient files to extract the relevant data.PROBLEM:CFX-Post doesn't allow the definition of multiple chart lines at once, and doesn't give the user any control over when it should re-read the transient data (which can take a long time if the run has a large number of timesteps.

# SYMPTOM: The CFX Solver fails if a region locator is used in a callback (e.g. minVal(Pressure)@REGION:myregion) when the simulation includes mesh deformation. The error is of the form: Details of error:- ---------------- Error detected by routine MAKDAT CDANAM = AREA CDTYPE = REAL ISIZE = 1 CRESLT = OLD Current Directory : /FLOW/GEOMETRY/REG1PROBLEM:This is due to a small error in the coding of this functionality.

# SYMPTOM: Incorrect values of laminar burning velocity can be obtained from the Solver for certain conditions. This will lead to either a discontinuity of the burning velocity, which can be observed in CFX Post, or to blow-out of the flame.PROBLEM:There are errors in the coding for equivalence ratios that are inside the 'Flammability Limits' and outside the 'Fit Range'. The following options are affected by the issue: the "Metghalchi and Keck" option for Laminar Burning Velocity and the "Quadratic Decay" and "Fifth Order Polynomial" options for Equivalence Ratio Correlation/Reference Burning Velocity.

# The real constant input for unsymmetric MATRIX27 has changed at 11.0.At release 10.0 and prior, MATRIX27 allowed for unsymmetric matrix input when KEYOPT(2)=1. At release 11.0, this option has become undocumented, and unsymmetric matrix input is specified with KEYOPT(2)=2. (There is also an additional KEYOPT(2)=3 for skew symmetric matrix input that is introduced at 11.0.)The ASCII table below provides a visual comparison of the differences in real constant input between 10.0 and 11.0 and may help serve as a mapping guide for changing 10.0 input to 11.0 input.ANSYS 10.0 and prior (KEYOPT(2)=1):001 002 003 004 005 006 | 007 008 009 010 011 012079 013 014 015 016 017 | 018 019 020 021 022 023080 081 024 025 026 027 | 028 029 030 031 032 033082 083 084 034 035 036 | 037 038 039 040 041 042085 086 087 088 043 044 | 045 046 047 048 049 050089 090 091 092 093 051 | 052 053 054 055 056 057------------------------+------------------------094 095 096 097 098 099 | 058 059 060 061 062 063100 101 102 103 104 105 | 106 064 065 066 067 068107 108 109 110 111 112 | 113 114 069 070 071 072115 116 117 118 119 120 | 121 122 123 073 074 075124 125 126 127 128 129 | 130 131 132 133 076 077134 135 136 137 138 139 | 140 141 142 143 144 078ANSYS 11.0 (KEYOPT(2)=2):001 002 003 004 005 006 | 007 008 009 010 011 012013 014 015 016 017 018 | 019 020 021 022 023 024025 026 027 028 029 030 | 031 032 033 034 035 036037 038 039 040 041 042 | 043 044 045 046 047 048049 050 051 052 053 054 | 055 056 057 058 059 048061 062 063 064 065 066 | 067 068 069 070 071 072------------------------+------------------------073 074 075 076 077 078 | 079 080 081 082 083 084085 086 087 088 089 090 | 091 092 093 094 095 096097 098 099 100 101 102 | 103 104 105 106 107 108109 110 111 112 113 114 | 115 116 117 118 119 120121 122 123 124 125 126 | 127 128 129 130 131 132133 134 135 136 137 138 | 139 140 141 142 143 144
