To run FLUENT in the background on a Windows system, the following commands can be used:
fluent 3d -g -i journal
fluent 3d -g -wait -i journal
fluent 3d -g -hidden -i journal
In these examples,
To get an output (or transcript) file while running FLUENT in the background on a Windows system, the journal file must contain the following command to write a transcript file:
; start transcript file /file/start-transcript outputfile.trn
where the outputfile is a file that the background job will create and which will contain the output that FLUENT would normally print to the screen (e.g., the menu prompts and residual reports).
See Section 4.9 for details about journal files. See Section 4.10 for details about transcript files.
