I like to know if there is an option to use multiple cores/processor when running FSI system coupling. I specified 5 cores in Mechanical and parallel processing with 8 cpu for Fluent. However, the run crashes when it reach Fluent. Any suggestions?

Does Fluent crash or fail to launch? What happens if you try in serial and with the same number of cores in parallel?

It works fine if "Serial" processing option is selected for Fluent, even if I chose 4 cores under "My computer" in Mechanical (Distributed selected). However, it does crash when I change to "Parallel" in Fluent. I tried to use the same number of cores for both: 4 cores in Mechanical (under "My Computer, with Distributed selected) and 8 processors (I believe it is 4 cores) for Fluent. These are messages I get:
"Update failed for the Solution component in System Coupling. The SC Service crashed or ended unexpectedly." I also get "DP(0) A solver failure occurred during the run in Fluid Flow (Fluent) system.

Can you save the Fluent case & data from a serial run & then try it outside of the workflow in parallel? I'm wondering if it's something in Fluent rather than the coupling. Do you have any UDFs active, and what other models are on in Fluent?

Yes, I had an active UDF (EXECUTE_AT_END). I removed the UDF and it works now. Thanks.
Is multi-core/processing incompatible with UDF?
January 22, 2021 at 9:58 amAhmed_AissaSubscriberIt is a common problem that people fail to run parallel simulations when a UDF is implemented within Fluent. If you try to debug the error from the Fluent side, you will notice an error of type makedir which prevent the UDF to be executed in parallel. To overcome this issue, you need to implement a recent version of Visual Studio and from the working directory of your Fluent job, open a command line (Cross tools command prompt) and open Fluent launcher from \User\Programe file\Ansys Inc\'your versiontbin\win64 (If you are using Windows). I am not sure if you can use the same method to open Workbench (From the Workbench working directory) but it is worth trying. n
