Before jumping mailing Flowtech's support, I might get better chances to get quicker answers here.
My first 3 trials using XCHAP, without VOF, converged eventually, although not being enable to post-process the results using Tecplot (SHIPFLOWPOSTPROC = TECPLOT is declared in the Windows system environment variables). The command file and the error looks like
Using XOFFGEN I generated the offset file, up to the deckline, removed bow group, but extracted the stem profile from it and included the station into the bulb group. Is there any way I can declare all the groups in the command file without altering XOFFGEN generated file? Or maybe the instruction offs ( iges = "name.igs" ...) without declaring groups at all?
I was instructed to use an IGES hull and "VOF" instruction in the command file (in order to capture the free surface), and it's deck extruded with construction height and then generate with XOFFGEN the offset file and I get negative volume cells, and some other times, errors regarding "not enough memory"
To summarize, can someone provide an example of a command file using an IGES file and VOF altogether?
Later edit: And what is that error in Tecplot?
Thank you very much!
PS: We are using ShipFlow 6.xx release, on a 12 GB memory Windows machine
