Updating Zone Aux Data in a text box at each Solution Time

Postby jono » Wed May 26, 2010 11:08 am

I have a time dependant solution. The 3D gemometry is comprised of 3 grid zones, and I have solutions @ 10 times (total of 30 zones in the Tecplot data file. While its quite easy to display the solution time in a text box that updates at each time step using: &(SOLUTIONTIME); I'd like to be able to update some other field as well based on data I supply in my datafile.

Specifically, I have a time variant angle of attack that I'd like to update per time step. I tried writing some AUXDATA ALPHA = ### where the ### is a different value for each time step in my data, however in the text box when I use: &(AUXZONE[1]:ALPHA) I only get the value of ALPHA from zone 1. How can I make the [number] change at each time step?

I can submit sample .lay and .dat files it it helps.

Cheers!

Ben

Try &(AUXZONE[ACTIVEOFFSET=1]:ALPHA)

Ah! My StrandID got messed up, hence ActiveOffset wasn't doing as I expected so I thought there was something else wrong. Now all works.

Thanks!
