Saving parameters settings

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The parameters set for a selected component in the parameters panel of CFturbo2ICEM can be saved in order to use them in further work sessions. In the save process, the whole panel settings are saved.

This capability of CFturbo2ICEM can be really useful in some situations. In fact, the generation of a good quality mesh requires some meshing loops by testing with different combinations of the parameters values. When a good set of parameters values is found, it can be used for similar geometries. This is of special interest in optimization processes in which all geometrical variants don't differ substantially. Meshing the geometries with a similar mesh resolution is important to compare CFD results in order to not introduce other factors different than the geometrical modifications.

Parameter files are XML files and have the extension *.paramsXML.

To save the parameters panel settings use the buttons "Save" or "Save As"

When the parameters were not saved for the current component so far, a message will be displayed on the area right to the buttons (see above). In this situation the buttons "Save" and "Save As" have the same functionality.

After saving a parameter file the selected filename is displayed (see below).
