Is there a way to import 2D surface (including a field value e.g. velocity ) and post in CFX-post?
For example if a csv is exported, manipulated in Matlab and the I want to view the result in CFX-post, how can I do that?

Class 3 Error

Certain callback functions that act on vector components, when used in association with local (user defined) coordinate frames, for example:

If an inlet mass flow rate is specified as a volumetric flow rate multiplied by a call back function of the density, for example massFlowAve(Density)@Inlet, then this will lead to incorrect velocity initialization, incorrect timescale specification, and incorrect solutions, which may not be obviously wrong, when the case is run in parallel.

This is due to a coding errror i

How can I overcome problems with recursive CEL in CFX 11.0?

How do I set a constant mass fraction at a wall?

The molar fraction fields are not written to the results file for all combustion models (e.g. Flamelet model) . Whilst this is appropriate most of the time, sometimes it may be useful to output these fields to the results file, such that they are available in CFX-Post.


The expert parameter setting shown below will output the molar fraction (also mass concentration and molar concentration) for all components:

mcf concentrations output option = 3

Available options are:

0 -> as per VARIABLES file
1 -> never
2 -> not for Flamelet
3 -> always

option 2 is the default.

Residuals for multidomain problems are combined provided the domains are connected together and the domains are of the same type. In most cases, this is convenient and compact. In some cases, it can be useful to report the domain residuals separately in the solver output file.

For a parallel run, the solver gives wrong answers if a partition contains a periodic axis and no other vertices of the two rotational periodic 1-to-1 interface sides.

Why, exactly, does ANSYS issue the warning "Some target elements on target surface specified by real constant set N belong to symmetric contact, some do not?" I have a number of overlapping contact regions, but it complains about only one. It would be nice to know under what conditions this message is triggered.

The warning message is not necessarily an indication of a problem, but it could be useful feedback if you are running into convergence trouble or your surface-based contact results are difficult...

The solver gives the same results when using a callback function for the torque calculation based on a global or local coordinate frame.

I can apply a Wall Heat Transfer Coefficient from a CFX results file to a model in Simulation, based on the CFX solution variable "Wall Heat Transfer Coefficient".
