  1. Hi! When you import a FLUX object in your project, if there are common parameters, with the same name, the software automatically changes the name of one, adding suffix "001". For example: I have the parameter <H = 5> in my "toimport.FLU" project, and the same <H = 5> in my "main.FLU" project. When I import "toimport.FLU" in "main.FLU" he automatically create the parameters <H = 5> and <H001 = 5>. There is a way to not let FLUX doing this? i'd like to have only one parameter <H=5> for all the project. Grazie!
  2. When closing sketcher context i receive the following error. Am i doing something wrong? Method "glGenBuffersARB" not available
  3. Could someone help me understand the following error? Im new to flux and this is the first simulation i tried to make. INFINITE: This region is not completely characterized In Physical, [MODIFY] [REG_SURF] [ELECTROSTAT_AXI] Impossible to solve problem
  4. Going to materials in the physics tab i only see the option new b(h) curve. I want to add a new material but the option isn't there. Did i do something wrong in the simulation or maybe have a setting wrong?
  5. In order to compute accurately the force on a part using the virtual works method, the part must be surrounded by air. There can be massive regions or thin regions of vacuum type. Theoretical explanations about virtual work method can be found in the online help: file:///C:/Altair/Flux_12.2/Help/Flux/english/Website/InterpretationDesResultats3DEnergieForceCouple.html?key=results energie torque force
  6. This question is frequently asked because three current sources in star connection can lead to convergence problems (and as well three voltage sources in delta connection). This configuration imposes more equations than there are unknowns to find during the solving process. The easiest solution to avoid this issue is to model only two sources instead of three. The voltage or current on the third branch will be imposed by the two others, and the computation will be correct. Flux online help explains it with more details: file:///C:/Altair/Flux_12.2/Help/Flux/english/Website/index.html?SourceDeTensionTriphaseeEnTriangle file:///C:/Altair/Flux_12.2/Help/Flux/english/Website/SourceDeCourantTriphaseEnEtoile.html?key=current sources It is also correct to model the three current sources, but a high resistance must be added in parallel with the 3rd part of the star connection.
  7. The macros enable the user to regroup the frequently used commands in an extension integrated into the software. You can build up a macro instead of manually executing a series of repetitive actions in Flux, which you will then be able to call regularly. A macro is interesting because it can encapsulate within a new command a series of repetitive operations and thus improve the quality and efficiency of the user-software interaction. Concretely, a macro file (*.py) is a text file, which defines the macro-function in the PyFlux language. It receives (upon entry) one or more parameters and executes (upon exit) a series of predefined actions. It is possible to use the macros provided with Flux or to create your own macros. All macros provided with Flux are open sources, to help you to create a macro fitting exactly your expectation. The list of macros provided with Flux is available in C:\Altair\Extensions\Macros\macros_list_EN.pdf. The moste recent one are described with more details in the attached document "New_Flux_macros_2016". New_Flux_macros_2016.pdf

  9. Here is a quick video explaining how getting started with Flux software! You will discover: -Flux supervisor environment -where to find examples and tutorials -how to define options: language, macros, memory settings -where to have access to help and documentation
  10. I want to simulate a geometry using Acusolve (AcuConsole) and I have a condition of mass flux for my outflow boundary, how can setup like this? The Acu Console only gives me the option of pressure values. Thank you.
