Generating time resolved plot data

The ADS CFD system allows the user to plot time resolved data during time accurate simulation with the following restrictions:

  • Feature only works for OHH meshes
  • Output plots are in Tecplot format

To enable time-resolved plotting you must set the ITIME variable in the 1st passage LEO setup file to 6.  Time resolved plotting also requires additional flags to be set in DIVISION 4 of the 1st passage LEO setup file:

Once you have made these changes to the first passage .LEO file, execute the simulation. 

When the simulation completes, three Tecplot-formatted files are generated:
