ParticleHeating test case not writing particle weight

Hello,

when I run ParticleHeating test case and try to save in vtu file format the particle weight is not saved. However, when the legacy vtk format is used it works.

Cheers,

Re: Linear Elasticity: Normal Force depending on displacement?

Thanks Peter! It seems that in the ElasticSolver only tetraeders and octaeders are available. Are there any richer basis functions for those than linear ones? Is there any way to use the LinearElasticity with the correct orientation of normal force? Or what is the easiest way (since there always is ...

Linear Elasticity: Normal Force depending on displacement?

Hi Guys, I'm wondering whether the "normal force" changes due to the displacements in the linear elasticity solver? For example if one analyzes the effect of hydrostatic pressure on mechanical structures, it is important to know (in case of big displacements, one might get wrong result). Best Regard...

Re: Possible to call solvers in c++ code?

Hi Alok, do you have some particular reason (other than evilness :lol: ) to cut out the "middle man"? If I remember correctly, in ElmerGUI, the running of ElmerSolver is done with some QProcess stuff which I think is quite similar to your current code architechture. So I don't see a problem with wha...

Re: Eddy current power losses in 3D

Hi Millim,

what you need is the harmonic analysis and the so called "surface impedance" boundary condition.

At the moment it does not exist in Elmer. However, it is quite easy to implement.

Cheers,

Re: Need Help with ElasticSolve problem

Hi Alok, try this Displacement 2 = Variable time Real MATC "10*tx" where "tx" is the representative of "Variable time". This is the convention used in sif, don't ask me why it is "tx". If you have several variables, then you will have "tx(0)", "tx(1)", etc... Moreover, normally Coordinate 3 is the z...

Re: Electrical Capacitance Calculation

Hi Millim, Maybe your potentials are mixed up? "PotA" should be "PotB" and vice verca. Just a comment: I would refer to the potentials as "PConduction" and "PStatic" or something similar. Then it is always easier to understand which potential you are dealing with. If you don't find the problem, you ...

Re: Electrical Capacitance Calculation

Just a general comment on your rhetorics: I advise you to rephrase these type of comments a bit little more: 1. I am sorry Peter, just take one of your simple test examples where stat current solver is used 2. I think the only way solving that is the use of a "reset file", which is really badly docu...

Re: Electrical Capacitance Calculation

I am sorry Peter, just take one of your simple test examples where stat current solver is used, take a text editor and make global exchange of "Potential" by "XYZ" and you will see completely different results. That is because "Potential" is a regognized variable keyword and "PotA". You did not fol...
