Paraview results different from ElmerPost?

Post by bptsj » 11 Jun 2016, 18:14

Hi,
I'm thermal modeling a die on a substrate and Elmer post shows the hot spot is the heat source on the die and the substrate is 300K (boundary cond). However, in Paraview the substrate is hot at 300K and the die is a 0K ?? I'm attaching a dropbox link is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/f1vmvobbt3qg1 ... 1.png?dl=0

Am I missing a setting on Paraview?

Thanks,
Brian

Just a guess: you're saving results prior to calculating the solution. Look at the output on the screen to see if this is the case. -Peter

SOLVED!! Thank you so much Peter for the educated guess.

I think what caused this was in the Model->Equation tab I had the Result Output tab set as active. The run log showed results getting saved prior to completion.

Thanks again,
Brian

Hi, you can activate the default ResultOutputSolve sequence for VTU output simple setting the name of the "Post File" to be *.vtu (instead of *.ep). -Peter
