Edit Input and Getting Results from a File for System Coupling from Command Line
I am working on a project that implements ANSYS with a calibration/optimization software. For this project to work, I need to run ANSYS from a batch file. I was able to run Workbench System Coupling from the command line by following the oscillating plate tutorial (Co-simulation with Workbench Setup and Command-Line Execution).
However, I also want to be able to...
1) edit the input file (i.e. change parameters like density, Young's modulus, magnitude of pressure) . I think I can do this by editing the madpl.dat and/or fluidFlow.cas from the tutorial. Is this the correct method?
2) read the result file to extract values like nodal displacement. I cannot locate which file contains the results. I think file1.rst in the Structural_Run directory from the tutorial contains the results, but characters are all gibberish when I open them in a text editor.
I am using ANSYS 2019 R2 Student version on Windows 10.
