How to Run a SU2 simulation:

This example demonstrates how to run a Laminar Buoyancy-driven Cavity simulation using SU2. First you need to download the config, mesh and run script files designed for this case.

Steps to Execute on Our Platform

  1. Upload Files: Click on the folder icon next to the Volume line and upload lam_buoyancy_cavity.cfg, mesh_cavity_257x257.su2 and to the working directory (/data) of your project.
    1. You can upload the input files in a zip file, however need to change the accordingly to unzip (or change directory if necessary).
  2. Set Project Directory: Make sure the Project Directory is set to /data (or the mounted volume to entered!).
    1. if you want to change the Project Directory, make sure to apply the changes in the accordingly.
  3. Configure Run Script: In the Run Script field, enter as the input.
  4. Create the Project: Click on Create to prepare your project environment.
  5. Run the Container: Go to the project tab and Start the container to run the script.

You can visualize the simulation results using Paraview, as listed in our software catalog. Paraview offers an interactive desktop environment, enabling effortless visualization of the results. This powerful tool allows for detailed analysis and interpretation of simulation data, enhancing your understanding and presentation of the findings.
