When using GUI:

6.  Launch ParaView using the “TCFD 18.10” desktop shortcut or the corresponding item in the Start menu.
7.  In case you see some errors immediately after launching ParaView; which can be caused by a missing or incompatible OpenGL drivers on your system; go to the TCFD installation directory, i.e., C:\TCFD\18.10\etc and edit the file paraview-launcher.ini by changing “system” keyword to “software”. Launch ParaView again.
8.  Open the tutorial configuration file e.g. axial-fan-simple.tcfd using the Load… button in the General section of the Properties panel located in the left area of the ParaView window. Image cfd-processor-TCFDSource-button-load-win
9.  Click Apply button. Image cfd-processor-TCFDSource-button-apply-win
10.  The steps 6, 8 and 9 can be substituted by double clicking a *.tcfd file. The *.tcfd files are automatically associated with TCFD\textregistered.
11.  In the Pipeline browser select Settings and then apply TCFD Manager filter from the toolbar. Image cfd-processor-TCFDManager-toolbar-icon-win
12.  Click Apply, then Write Case and finally Run All. Image cfd-processor-TCFDSource-button-apply-win Image cfd-processor-TCFDManager-button-write-case-win Image cfd-processor-TCFDManager-button-run-all-win
13.  And all the process is done automatically: the new case is written into default case name tcfdcase0, mesh is created, case is set up, case is simulated, results are evaluated and report is written down.
14.  Inside the Line Chart View, the instant residuals can be watched. For more information about the computation, the report can be updated anytime during the simulation. Image cfd-processor-TCFDManager-button-light-report-win
15.  When the simulation is finished the final results report is written down. It is located inside the test case: .\tcfdcase0\report-tcfdcase0\tcfdcase0.html
16.  Visual postprocessing can be done in http://www.paraview.org/ParaView using https://www.cfdsupport.com/turbo-blade-post.htmlTurbo Blade Post plugins (included).
