Dear Libmesh users, I have compiled Libmesh, and tried several different options. The program runs fine in all cases and the output of all examples is reproduced except for example 13. Whatever I try, I do not seem to be able to reproduce the output given on the website. There is only a difference between u and u_old in the first step. In the following steps the difference is always 0. If I look at the results with GMV, all output files are the same. This indicates that after the first time step a stationary state has been reached, which seems impossible to me. Is this a known problem ? Is there something wrong with the code in example 13, or do I have an error in my installation ? I have included the output of the program below. Your help will be appreciated, Kind regards, Rob van Tol. *************************************************************** Running Example ./ex13 *************************************************************** Mesh Information: mesh_dimension()=2 spatial_dimension()=3 n_nodes()=1681 n_elem()=400 n_local_elem()=400 n_active_elem()=400 n_subdomains()=1 n_processors()=1 processor_id()=0 EquationSystems n_systems()=1 System "NavierStokes" Type "TransientImplicit" Variables="u" "v" "p" Finite Element Types="0" "0" "0" Approximation Orders="2" "2" "1" n_dofs()=3803 n_local_dofs()=3803 n_constrained_dofs()=0 n_vectors()=1 n_parameters()=2 Parameters: "linear solver maximum iterations"=250 "linear solver tolerance"=0.001 Solving time step 0, time = 0.005 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 224.402 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 1 Solving time step 1, time = 0.01 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 0 Solving time step 2, time = 0.015 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 0 Solving time step 3, time = 0.02 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 0 Solving time step 4, time = 0.025 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 0 Solving time step 5, time = 0.03 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 0 Solving time step 6, time = 0.035 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 0 Solving time step 7, time = 0.04 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 0 Solving time step 8, time = 0.045 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 0 Solving time step 9, time = 0.05 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 0 Solving time step 10, time = 0.055 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 0 Solving time step 11, time = 0.06 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 0 Solving time step 12, time = 0.065 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 0 Solving time step 13, time = 0.07 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 0 Solving time step 14, time = 0.075 Nonlinear convergence: u  u_old = 0 Nonlinear solver converged at step 0   Time: Wed May 5 15:55:39 2004  OS: Linux  HostName: pc02023  OS Release 2.4.208  OS Version: #1 Thu Mar 13 17:54:28 EST 2003  Machine: i686  Username: root    Example 13 Performance: Alive time=8.19504, Active time=5.4663   Event nCalls Total Avg Percent of   Time Time Active Time      linear solve 16 5.4663 0.341644 100.00    Totals: 16 5.4663 100.00   dr.

Dear John, I have tried to compile the code again: ./configure disablempi disableparmetis disablelaspack make The code compiles, as well as the examples. However, when I try to run the examples I get the error massage: ERROR: Unrecognized solver package: 0 src/numerics/numeric_vector.C, line 66 So I am a bit lost. Kind regards, Rob van Tol.

Dear John, I have PetSc installed ( version 2.2.0 ), without mpi, for which the tests run correctly. So, I think this may not be the problem. I will check the installation of PetSc again and add MPI. Would it be possible that the absence of MPI is the problem ? I would be grateful if you could run example 13 and test the results against the results on the website and then post your version of ex13.C. This way I will be sure that my version of Libmesh causes the problem and not ex13.C itself. The version of ex13.C I have, comes from: libmesh0.4.2 at Sourceforge, which is slightly different from the version on the website. It is remarkable that only example 13 gives different results.

Dear John, I will get the latest version from the cvs tomorrow, since its getting late at my end of the world, and hope for better results. Thank you for your time and support. I'll keep you informed. Best regards, ROB At 11:53 5/05/2004 0500, you wrote: >Rob van Tol writes: > > I have PetSc installed ( version 2.2.0 ), without mpi, for which the > tests > > run correctly.

Sorry I have been quiet for the past week, I had surgery and only today feel well enough to type... I did notice the sane problem. It seems that the Laspack iterative solvers were aborting after 0 iterations in the subsequent solves of ex13. I'm still not sure *why* this is. However, I changed the Laspack interface to call the iterative solvers with a 0 initial guess. That's why the CVS version does not have this issue. I was hoping to release 0.4.3 before I went in for surgery, but it didn't happen. It should be availible soon.
