Q. I have a CFX model with multiple domains I am using in CFX 11.0. Constant domain physics is not being enforced, and I see no way to activate it. How can this be?

A. The default CFX behavior is that constant domain physics is enforced. If, under OPTIONS in CFX-Pre (edit), you enable Beta features, a flag to turn off the enforcement of constant domain physics appears when you right click on Simulation in CFX-Pre. If it is turned off, and then beta features are deactivated, the constant domain physics enforcement will stay deactivated. You have to turn beta features back on and then activate the constant domain physics.

Q. I want to export vorticity to my CFX results file. I've been told I can simply change the Export to postprocessor setting from NO to YES in the VARIABLES file, but although I can see that file in the installation, I do not have permission to change it. What can I do?

A. First create a CCL file (mycclfile.ccl) from the VARIABLES file that looks like what is below. This is just the section of the VARIABLES file that deals with vorticity. Then from the launcher open a command window and execute:

cfx5solve 'def cylinder5.def 'ini cylinder5_004.res -ccl mycclfile.ccl

I am having difficulty importing a mesh created with Gambit into CFX-Pre.
I get the error message "Unable to import mesh: Premature end of file detected when read Face Tree" when trying to import the msh format file.

The mesh imports in Fluent. I tried importing the mesh into Fluent and saving, then importing into CFX-Pre. That seems to work, but the imported mesh has an issue. In one region of the mesh that was created using "Hex Core" the faces of the hex elements and the neighboring pyramid elements were put into 2d regions, which CFX-Pre insists bound the 3D fluid region.
The problem doesn't exist on volume regions generated using Hex.

If the Schmehl secondary break-up model is used without the viscosity for the droplet material being set, then the droplets will break up to the minimum allowable droplet diameter. This is incorrect and may not be noticeable.

Class 3 Error

A multiphase case (with at least two Eulerian phases) which has a Lagrangian particle phase which transfers mass to an Eulerian phase and uses the coupled volume fraction method for its solution gives incorrect results. The results are correct if the Eulerian fluid involved in mass transfer from the Lagrangian particles has a density of exactly 1 in solver units, but incorrect otherwise. In a well-converged case, it may be noticed that the imbalances of some equations (those which have a contribution from the Particle Source) are significantly larger than for the other equations, but for a less well-converged case this will not be noticeable.

The user is experiencing this error because they are using a roaming profile. With a roaming profiles your user settings, Application Data, HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry entries, and User environment variables are all transferred to any machine you log into on the network.
Since RSM uses network accounts to submit jobs, when the user tried to send an analysis to the remote solve manager/computer server, their user environment variables were also transferred to that machine. On a Windows computer your user environment variables will overtake the system environment variables.
This means that the user variable for a 32bit machine ("ANSYS_SYSDIR=Intel") was being used instead ofthe system variable for the 64bit machine ("ANSYS_SYSDIR=winx64").

In problems where all domain interfaces have been set up using the automatic option, the solver may give incorrect results when domain interfaces are close together. This might be especially true for thin solid domains when errors will be obtained in temperature values and energy balance.

There is a limitation of the GGI intersection algorithm when all the domain interfaces are grouped into the same default interface, and the separation distance between the interfaces is very small relative to the mesh size.
