Reply To: Regarding Particle Checkpoints


Dear Rookie,

Loading the saved data will indeed restart the simulation at the first time step, but with the saved fluid data. If you want to continue from the stopped time step, I’d suggest to write this information additionally to another file and then read the time step from this file when loading the fluid data. Then use it to set iT accordingly. See [1] for an introduction to file input/output, if necessary.

Unfortunately, there is currently no implemented method for saving and loading the particle data. You could do it manually, for example by writing data (global particle ID, position, velocity, force, …) to files and loading them later, creating new particles and updating their data with the input from the file.

Best regards,
