Table of Available Variables - Part 2

Keyword Variable Group Saved TH Variables


  1. Variable names must be left justified.
  2. Available names are listed in the two tables below.

    In the first table, TH-variables are listed. If a TH-variable is requested, this variable is written.

    In the second table, other variables are listed. If a variable group is requested, all the associated TH-variables are written at once.

  3. SPH_FLOW can only be used with /SPH/INOUT of type 2, 3 or 4.
  4. The flow can be filtered using a Butterworth filter. Refer to /SPH/INOUT for additional information.
  5. The contribution of a particle to the flow is considered positive if the particle cross the surface in the positive direction (according to the direction of the normal of the surface) and negative, otherwise.
