    Changing values of boundary condition during running simulation in Flow Simulation

    Alexander Köhler



      I use SolidWorks Flow Simulation. I want to change the flow
      rate values of a boundary condition by the API during a running CFD simulation.
      After an iteration measurements are read by the API. Then, an external program calculates
      new boundary conditions that are passed to the API (Co-Simulation).


      Currently I stop the simulation after one interationstep by
      the API, then I change the values of the boundary conditions (by the API) and start
      the simulation for the next iterationstep (by the API). But the start and stop
      takes far too long time. Sometimes the CFD solver hangs in the point
      "model is being prepared".


      Is there another way to change the values of boundary
      conditions during a running simulation, without stopping the Solver?


      I would appreciate very much if you would answer me.



      Best regards,
