How to use Custom Executables for the ANSYS CFX Solver?

I am running Redhat Enterprise 3, with nvidia accelerated graphics, and am using gnome as the window manager .
When I login as a user I have exclusive access to the graphics device in any terminal window

i.e /dev/nvidia* has permissions rw-------

If I open a xconsole and su to another user account then CFX crashes at startup while trying to access the graphics.
Is there a workaround?

<br>The solution is to chmod /dev/nvidia* to allow access this time, it will be reset when you next login, or modify /etc/security/console.perms to change the default.

Q. I have discovered that Pre and Post have stopped working after I installed the new CFX viewer, for .cvf postprocessing files. I get a socket error, and a non-zero return code and nothing appears on the screen.

A. This may be related to running a firewall, specifically Norton or Windows XP. CFX-Pre, Post and the viewer all use the same technology to display to the screen, which uses a socket connection. The firewall may have blocked such connections after the installation of the new Viewer software and so subsequently affects Pre and Post as well. Try turning off the firewall, or reconfiguring it to accept connections for the CFX software, and see if it then all works.

Question: When I try to import ProE geometry into Icem, I get the following error, and ProE crashes:

x11r5_create_fontset: Missing character set: GB2312.1980-0
x11r5_create_fontset: Missing character set: GB2312.1980-0 type ABS; type ABS; Application 'promif' is already registered.


This means you are using a non-English language of ProE, which we do not support.

However, it may work by setting the following environment variable:


Relaunch ProE or try the direct import again.

Various errors with ICEM were reported by a user who had set the windows decimal character to a comma "," rather than a period ".". These errors generally seemed to be related to the open and save dialog boxes. What could cause this?

In this case, the errors ceased after the decimal character was set to a period.

Q. I am running an MFX case that successfully transfers the loads from CFX to ANSYS. However, it looks like the displacements are not coming back to CFX, since the mesh doesn't move. What could be wrong?

A. It is possible that all the nodes on the interface are also part of a boundary which is not allowed to move. This could be the case, for example, if the model were a 2D representation one element deep with Periodic boundaries. You can either create symmetry boundaries instead, where the motion is Unspecified, or edit the CCL of the periodic boundaries to become Unspecified (CFX-PRE won't let you make the mesh motion of a periodic boundary Unspecified).

Do you have an example demonstrating confinement/compression of an o-ring using ogden hyperelasticity and contact?


I found some old files in which I use curve fitting to obtain 3 parameter Ogden hyperelastic coefficients. I incorporated this material data in a simple 2D axisymmetric o-ring model including contact that I found in the release 5.5 structural nonlinearities training notes.

The model uses pure displacement formulation, NOT mixed u-P. I could not get it to converge with mixed u-P.

I am not clear on just what the implications of this are, although the documentation asserts that mixed u-P is more robust for nearly incompressible problems.

Running an equilibrium phase change model with a binary mixture specified using Redlich and Kwong convergence is impossible when significant condensation occurs and unphysical temperature and gas mass fractions are produced.

If you have set reference enthalpies and/or reference entropies in the specific heat objects then remove them. These are incompatible with the Redlich & Kwong material properties set up...

I would like to know the format for adding hosts to the hosts.ccl file. My hosts.ccl file currently only contains the one host and I am not sure how to add another.
If you have an example file this would help.

The hosts.ccl file is in the directory <CFXROOT>/config where <CFXROOT> is the full pathname of your ANSYS CFX 10 installation. When you install ANSYS CFX 10 the...

The customer has installed the x64 version of ANSYS 10.0 sp1 and is getting the following error when trying to use the LMTOOLS Utility:

I want to do a transient simulation where I have flow in a domain for a while, then suddenly a valve or door opens into a new domain allowing flow to pass through. Should I set up the simulation with both domains modelled and a wall between the two, and then perform a restart with the wall removed at the appropriate time?

Generally speaking, yes, people tend to start off with the 2-domain scenario and have something like a domain interface between the two with the 'conservative interface flux' options...

I cannot start a pvm run under Windows. What can I do?

Starting 'cfx5parallel -pvm-console' from the CFX command line replies:

Sometimes when I transfer my geometry from Design Modeller to CFX-Mesh it takes a very long time to appear. With some models, in the end CFX-Mesh just crashes.

Usually, this problem is caused by overlapping solids in your DM geometry. Overlapping solids are not allowed in CFX mesh as meshing is done essentially on a solid-by-solid basis... and this would...
