Re: beginner. How to install and perform??


This is perhaps a stupid question, but I am not used to the vtk format that is output from a simulation in OpenLB. For example after running the cylinder2d example, I can open up the simulation data with paraview located in cylinder2d/tmp/vtkData/data and here we have files that seem to be grouped according to time and some type of block structure:


. For the standard case it seems for each time step we have 7 blocks corresponding to the zones of the mesh geometry. Why isn’t the output just combined in a single file? Is there a way to combine all of the geometry and time files into a single file so that I can “”play”” forward in time while looking at the entire geometry an not just per block?
