25.19 Executing Commands During the Calculation

As described in Sections  25.18 and 25.20.1, respectively, you can report and monitor various quantities (e.g., residuals, force coefficients) and create animations of the solution while the solver is performing calculations. FLUENT also includes a feature that allows you to define your own command(s) to be executed during the calculation at specified intervals. For example, you can ask FLUENT to export data to a third-party package such as FIELDVIEW after every time step. You will specify a series of text commands or use the GUI to define the steps to be performed.


If you want to save case or data files at intervals during the calculation, you must use the Autosave Case/Data panel (opened with the File/Write/Autosave... menu item). See Section  4.3.4 for details.
