I tested the performance of openflower using prisms_hexas.flw within examples folder
I converted prisms_hexas.geo into *.msh using gmsh and excute OpenFlower command to combind with *.flw and *.msh
I saw that the caculation results were going into out file..
It takes too much time to complete procesure
It was about 42 minute under Pentium 4 processor..
Maybe we need to make cluster in order to perform our task well
The result of temperature profile was pretty good.
It was my first CFD caculation!
It is good to hear that you succeeded the different steps in using OpenFlower ;-)
Well, the prisms_hexas example file may not be optimized, I mean that the final time I gave in the input file maybe very large in terms of diffusion time...
I hope that it's the case ?!!
Anyway, I know that a little improvement must be done in the code since it is at its early stages. I already made a couple of months ago a (huge ! ) optimization saving up to (if I recall exactly) 25 % CPU time in computing diffusion... but I guess we could optimize it a little bit more.
See you soon,
your answer about calculation time makes sense.
optimization process is time consuming and quite difficult processs.
I hope that the performance will be improved through modifying optimation process.
