Yes it is was for editing the solver input files maybe something is broken.

Tried it and it works as expected. At least it starts the solver, canceled it afterwards.
- Can't tell how old your version of FC is "Win 10 - 20839 Git". Maybe you try a update.
- Are the path to your solver binary set correctly in the Preferences->FEM->Elmer?; Where are the simulation files stored check Preferences->FEM ->General -> Working directory... ; I use here 'Beside...'
- Did you save the file somewhere on your harddisk before starting the simulation?
Code: Select all
Checking analysis... Preparing input files... Finished.
Hi thschrader, the time consuming aspect of Elmer vs. OpenFoam is most likely due to your selection of convergence criteria. Elmer uses very exacting default values while OpenFoam default at more reasonable levels of accuracy. Changing that can drastically reduce your time to solution.
meshing: max cell size 10 mm with gmshRatonLaveur wrote: ↑Fri May 01, 2020 3:56 pmMesh too fine? I used a 1.5 mm mesh size in gmsh for a flow step roughly 50 by 150 by 5 mm.
Also why did you put bubbles true?
Also linear iterative and 250 iterations limit. Allowed tolerance of 10e-15 (yeah i know...but it reached it haha) and convergence of 10e-4
