Recover mesh cycles

Hi, 

 

I have run several adaptive mesh cycles with my model when the simulation crashed. Now, if I try to open again the file none of the meshing cycles appear, and all results are lost.

Nevertheless, if I open the "Design1" folder where I saved my simulation, I can see all the subfolder with the cycles I run, that is, "Scenario 1", "Scenario 1 - Mesh 1", etc...

 

Is there any way to recover and open this data?

 

Thanks,

Hi,

 

you can try to open the cfz support file and replace the support folder with original folder.

If you have any .res files in the scenario folder you can try a similar approach:

 

  1. Open the support file
  2. Close and save the support file
  3. Copy over a .res file from the old analysis to the new analysis
  4. Open new project again
  5. Run for 0 iterations and see if the results appear

There is no surefire way to guarantee this but we find that this technique often works well.

Hi Jon,

 

I am running into a similar issue. 

Could you be a little bit more specific about which .res files you moved and where you moved them to?

 

I have tried moving just the .res file from the final mesh, e.g.:

 

file\Design 1\Scenario 1\solver\Scenario 1.res.s713

to 

file_support\Design 1\Scenario 1\solver\Scenario 1.res.s713

 

When this didn't work, I also tried recreating the file structure in the new design folder and have moved the .res files from each mesh adaptation as well, e.g.:

 

file\Design 1\Scenario 1 - Mesh 1\solver\Scenario 1 - Mesh 1.res.s902

to

file_support\Design 1\Scenario 1 - Mesh 1\solver\Scenario 1 - Mesh 1.res.s902

 

Each of these results in the following output upon running for 0 iterations:

 

*********** ANALYSIS STARTED ***********

Turbulent Incompressible Flow is ON

Turbulence model: SST_k-omega

Intelligent Wall Formulation: ON

Begin Post-Processing Calculations ...

Post-Processing Calculations Done

Begin Post-Processing File Output ...

Post-Processing File Output Done

Analysis completed successfully

Adaptive meshing process started...

Loading model...

Loading mesh sizes and constraints...

Computing adaptive mesh sizes...

Mesh adaptation has failed.

 

I'd really appreciate any insight. This has happened to about 10 similar jobs of a set of about 100 similar jobs so I don't think that it is a mesh issue.

Let me know if you need any additional information or if I am being unclear about anything. Thanks!
