######## WORK NOTES COPIED FROM INCIDENT 692434 ########

I performed an MFX simulation (2-way FSI between CFX and ANSYS) from t=0[s] to 2[s] and also performed a restart run at t=1[s] using the same model as a separate run. The results just after restart at t=1.1[s] are not the same for both models. Why is this?

This is a known issue when the values transferred from ANSYS to CFX (displacements in this case) have not been fully converged within a timestep. It is only a problem when ANSYS is solving second (last). When performing a restart, in the first timestep ANSYS will ask CFX for the last displacement values that it sent from the previous run, since ANSYS does not store these values itself. When ANSYS solves last it will not have sent the most recent displacement values to CFX in the last timestep of the previous run, therefore it will not be restarting from the most recent displacements. This is not a problem when the displacements have been fully converged within the last timestep of the previous run, but if the displacements were still changing a restarted run will show different behaviour than a continuous run. QA Defect 31747 is associated with this issue.

Class 3 Error

This error applies to two distinct setups.
1) A case run in parallel with stage interfaces may have errors in the calculation of the stage averaged pressure and the stage mass flow.
2) A case run in parallel when the mass flow rate is specified at a GGI Interface boundary may have errors in the calculation of the mass flow.
In most cases the error will not occur or will be small.

The CFX Solver makes an assumption that each GGI control surface is contained within the same partition as the corresponding face on the first interface side. This is not always true. In this case in a parallel run the CFX Solver will miss some of the control surfaces when building the averaged stage group pressure and the summarized stage group mass flow, or when the mass flow rate is calculated at GGI Interfac

Class 3 Error

In a multiphase calculation CFX-Post computes the same pressure force irrespective of which fluid is selected. This is consistent with the current documentation, which says that the pressure force is the same irrespective of which fluid is selected, but it can lead to the following bizarre result: if the user adds up the force due to each fluid they will get the wrong answer for the total force because the same pressure force will have been added twice, but the shear force is only included once.

This is due to an error in how forces are defined an

Q. I am trying to use intermediate transient results from CFX as part of a one-way FSI analysis in WB Simulation to perform a Structural/Thermal analysis. However, Simulation does not seem to be able to import the appropriate data. What could be wrong?

A. If only selected variables are stored in the CFX results file, it is possible that CFX-Post will not have enough information to compute the necessary data to transfer to WB Simulation. In order to get around this issue ask for standard output in CFX-Pre for the Transient results set.

Class 3 Error

In a PTM calculation with a stage interface, particles that cross the interface may appear to be clustered in regions where the grid is finer, thus producing more effect on the continuous phase in these areas.

Particles that cross the interface should continue from random azimuthal positions with the same axial and radial positions. However at present the code continues the particles from a random element face in the azimuthal direction, thus giving a concentration of particles in areas where the

In ICEM CFD, the pre-mesh quality check indicates negative determinants.
