ElmerSolver does not work

Post by Roland »

Hi, I am new in Elmer (I am a Comsol user) and have downloaded Elmer recently. I try to make the "Heat equation - Temperature field of a solid object" tutorial. But after having made the model (equation, material, BC's) when I launch the Elmer solver It does not work. Here attached are the Solver_log and the Sif_code files.
Thanks for helping me to fix this problem!
Best regards
Roland

Hi,

do you use ElmerGUI? Then you have to File->Save project before you start the solver. See ElmerGUI Manual.

HTH,

Dear Matthias,
Now it works fine! But I could not run the postproccessing (neither Start ElmerPost nor Start ElmerVTK which gives nothing or a blank window...). Have you an idea why it doesn't work? Is it possible to get more equations (like for instance turbulent flow) than the default included ones (like Electrostatics, Navier-Stockes, etc...)? I sent a new topic about this.
Thanks for your help!
Best
