When I try to use the Help for any CFX 10 application I get the message:
'Error return from Help Viewer: Initialise JARReader: Environment variable CFX5JAVA not set ' I cannot find anything about this variable in the installation manual, so can you tell me what I need to set.

You need to install the SUN Java 2 Runtime Environment - available in the download and on the CFX 10.0 installation CD. Version 10 uses Java for Help whereas previous versions use Adobe Acrobat.

How to calculate the frontal area of a convex closed surface?
Example application is the frontal area of a car, which is required to calculate the aerodynamic coefficients.

The frontal area can be calculated with the following CEL:<br><br>IntegrationVariable = Normal X/abs(Normal X + 1e-8)<br>FrontalArea = 0.5 * areaInt_x( IntegrationVariable...

The specified Start Iteration List for transient statistics objects only appears to be honoured by the CFX Solver for the first variable in the list.

If a transient statistics object is requested and contains multiple variables, and the Start/Stop Iteration List contains fewer integers than variables, then all subsequent variables in the list will start collecting statistics at Timestep 1. Although this is by design (and is documented), a change in the behaviour for Release 10.0 SP1 has been made to make it more intuitive. The new behaviour is such that subsequent variables in the list will start collecting statistics at the last specified timestep in the Start Iteration List.

For example, suppose a transient statistics object contains Pressure and Velocity in the variables list, and the `Start Iteration List' was set to 500 as follows:

TRANSIENT STATISTICS: Transient Statistics 1
Option = Arithmetic Average
Output Variables List = Pressure, Velocity
Start Iteration List = 500

In Release 10.0 statistical calculations for Velocity would start at Timestep 1. In Release 10.0 SP1, they will start at Timestep 500.

WORKAROUND:<br>Specify individual Start/Stop Iterations for each variable in thelist.<br><br>FIXED IN:<br>Release 10.0 SP1.

Class 3 Error

When a transient simulation is restarted, the transient statistics for some variables are incorrect.

This is a bug in the CFX Solver when restarting transient calculations where the transient statistics include Pressure or Velocity. For these variables, including statistical Reynolds Stresses calculated for LES and DES simulations, the values are re-initialised at the beginning of

WORKAROUND:<br><br>FIXED IN:<br>Release 10.0 SP1.

A customer notes that, in the ANSYS 10.0 Element Reference, SHELL93 does *not* list creep under "Special Features", but EPCR *is* listed in Table 91.2, "Element Output Definitions". Same for SHELL91. The documentation is inconsistent. Is creep a supported feature for these elements, or not?

Development confirms that both SHELL91 and SHELL93 support creep. The ¿Special Features¿ lists in the element descriptions were incorrect. This documentation has been corrected for...

I am having trouble getting a reaction for liquid injection. I have set up a reacting mixture and defined the reaction. My N2 scalar is set to constraint and all others are set to "Transport Equation". I have checked to make sure that the droplets are evaporating properly and they are.

I would like to determine how the critical angle can be calculated in ANSYS. The angle would be the angle of rotation of the structure about some point. The critical angle the maximum angle beyond which a structure becomes unstable & may topple under self weight.


ANSYS can calculate the critical angle but it will require some work on the part of the user. The procedure is basically to calculate the location of the center of gravity using Inertia Relief and the PSOLVE command. It is necessary to use PSOLVE since ANSYS will only calculate the exact center of gravity during the solution phase; the inertia values that are printed out at the beginning of solution are approximations. Details for performing an Inertia Relief analysis may be found in the Structural Analysis Guide; details for the procedure may be found in the Theory Manual. Once the location of the center of gravity is determined, the critical angle would be found as the angle between the point or line of rotation and the center of gravity using standard trigonometry.

I am running a multi-step analysis in Workbench. I inserted a command snippet that does some specialized postprocessing (writes some matrices of results items to text files) for each of 5 load steps. These matrices look correct for every load step. However, when examining the results objects within WB itself, the LS 1 and LS 5 results are identical even though the loading is different in each load step. I have written an ANSYS input file and have rerun the analysis in ANSYS (traditional) Environment and the results looks correct for every load step. Is this a bug in WB?

This is not a bug. The command snippet that was inserted under Solution caused the 5th results set to be used for postprocessing LS 1. Here¿s how it works.<br><br>When the...
