      How to get the ID of a zone or a surface in Fluent from its name ?

      To get the ID of a Cell Zone or a Boundary Condition, use the command zone-name->id. Examples: Example 1: display the ID of a zone in the TUI: (display (zone-name->id 'nameofthezone)) Example 2: store the ID of the zone in a variable: (rp-var-define 'int-zone 1 'integer #f) (rpsetvar 'int-zone (zone-name->id 'nameofthezone)) (rpgetvar 'int-zone) To get the ID of a post-processing surface, use the command surface-name->id: Example: display the ID of a surface in the TUI: (display (surface-name->id 'nameofthesurface)) Before executing this command it is a good practice to check if the surface exists or not using the boolean command: (surface-name/id? 'nameofthesurface)

      Hi,


      where can I find documentation on these, and related, functions of the fluent scheme environment?


      They are obviously not in the TUI command list.


      Best,


      Stefan

      No. There is a non official Scheme documentation from Javurek University of Linz and we have some further internal things which we sometimes share with commercial customers.
