plot files twinkle after clicking plot buttom

    • Aoran


      I am doing the fluent tutorials case of 19.0 "Simulating a Single Battery Cell Using the MSMD Battery

      Model", and I am of doing at the 22.4.5 postprocessing number 7, which asked me to display the discharge curves for the positive tab for the different discharge rates. However after I have done all process the tutorials asked, the plot just blinks and goes to a weird straight line.

      I am using the Anasys fluent 19.0 standalone, and my computer system is win-10.

      Well, since for the internet limit I can not upload the tinkle short video, but I will upload later on.

      I just ask if anybody has met the same problem? And if someone did, how to solve the problem and show the right plot?

      the picture is the xyplot dialog box

      Hello Aoran,

      This is not something I have experienced. It seems like a graphics issue - please check you are using the supported graphics card and the drivers are up to date. Below is a link to a list of cards tested for R19.2. Also, please consider using a recent release - R2019R2.


      Best regards,

      Hello Samir

      Thank you for answering my question. I will check my graphic card and the latest release, and I will let you know if it is solved.

      Best Regard

      Hello guys 

      I think I have found what had happened to me.

      The problem is I have loaded too much information for plotting. For the max_temperature shows I have loaded the max_temperature data, but also it has flow_time data with it. To show the relations between max_temperature and the time steps,  things I need to do more than change legend entry of the max_temperature, but also need to disable each flow-time under the box of  Y-Axis Variables in the File-XY-PLOT dialog box.

      In this case, the plot screen will not twinkle anymore.

      I believe one reason that caused this is I am using the tutorial for 19.2 and my fluent version is 19.0 that caused a slightly difference.

      Thanks for Samir's help.
