Re: How hard would it be to have units indicated in Elmer GUI?

Hello Everyone! Thank you for all the replies and amazing feedback. My bad on the absence, it was a busy semester. I'm going to follow up with Matthias' advice and see what can be done. Personally I'm not a a fan of British measurement system and I'm a lot more used to SI. In Canada we have to use b...

How hard would it be to have units indicated in Elmer GUI?

Hello Colleagues, I'm curious about making the units displayable in Elmer. I find it bothersome checking what units I have to use by going back and forth between forums, manuals, and other literature. I understand that Elmer uses SI, and if you know your field enough it shouldn't be a problem to kno...

Re: Elmer version 8.1. is out

Hello, I've noticed in the updates (ubuntu), that there is some package called elmer-cuda. I got excited seeing it! I know I haven't posted much on the forums, but I've learned so much using Elmer, it's a wonderful tool! So I just wanted to ask if there is actually cuda support now and can we now us...

Re: VectorHelmholtz Boundary question

Hello Peter, Thank You for the clarification, it helps. Though, I do wonder why not keep the scales the same? Every time I make an .stp file in FreeCad, in [um], then mesh it in Gmsh and transfer it to Elmer, I would have to automatically assume that my new model 1000 times bigger? Looking at the Mo...

Re: VectorHelmholtz Boundary question

Hello, I've tried the wave-guide tutorial and when I looked at the geometry file I've noticed that the size of the inlet and outlet is 100um by 50um rather than 10cm and 5cm (when you open the file in FreeCAD for instance). That concerned me, because I thought that the port sizes were associated wit...

Re: Installing Elmer in Ubuntu 14.04 using Cmake

Hello Colleagues, Anil, you are absolutely right about the 64bit system. I've reinstalled the OS completely and realized what a huge goof i am after doing the elmer installation again. In the end everything worked perfectly when I followed the instructions with the 64 bit system and i got only 3 tes...

Re: Installing Elmer in Ubuntu 14.04 using Cmake

Hello Anil, Thank you for a quick response and sorry for the delay. I have the 32bit version of Ubuntu 14.04, the gcc and the gfortran versions are 4.8.2. I've tried installing the new version of elmer, from git, and used cmake-gui to have elmer without any bells and whistles, just with the MPI. The...

Re: Installing Elmer in Ubuntu 14.04 using Cmake

Hello Colleagues, Has anyone had this strange problem that after the installation the ctest has yielded only 13% success? I've tried everything by now and it seems that there is no solution to this problem despite my best efforts. I've posted about this issue in the other post ( http://www.elmerfem....

Re: Cmake based Elmer distributions

Hello, Elan here, As per my previous post the following is the process I went through to install elmer version 7 in ubuntu 14.04 (keep in mind I've recently started with ubuntu, so I'm not entirely competent in the linux area yet): 1. Made directories for elmer in home folder and made the build and ...

When I followed the instructions to install via the launchpad, I've got segmentation error on my attempt to run the vortex shedding example, also some packages are missing. So I've gone through the cmake road to get th...
