Load Balance Panel
Load Balance panel allows you to enable and control
FLUENT's load balancing feature. Load balancing will automatically detect and analyze parallel performance, and redistribute cells between the existing compute nodes to optimize it. See Section
31.6.2 for more information about load balancing.
turns the automatic load balancing feature on or off.
contains the partition method from which you will select and a balance interval that you must set.
contains a drop-down list of the recursive bisection methods that can be used to create new grid partitions. The choices include the
Cartesian R Axes,
Spherical Theta-Coordinate, and
Spherical Phi-Coordinate techniques, which are described in Section
allows you to specify the desired interval for load balancing cycles, in terms of number of iterations. When a value of 0 is specified,
FLUENT will internally determine the best value to use, initially using an interval of 25 iterations. You can override this behavior by specifying a non-zero value.
FLUENT will then attempt to perform load balancing after every N iterations, where N is the specified

returns the load balancing parameters to their default values.
