Input File Commands

This topic describes the input file commands that are supported by hwCFDReport.

hwCFDReport is a command line utility that is used to generate images and plots from simulation results. The script reads it's input from an ASCII text file that specifies the visualization objects to create, the manner in which they are assembled into images, and the views of the images to capture. The tool then runs HWCFD Post-processing (HPL) in batch to generate the images and assemble them into a PowerPoint. hwCFDReport runs on Windows or Linux systems. To configure your environment to run hwCFDReport, it is necessary to add $INSTALLDIR/hwdesktop/hwx/plugins/hwd/profiles/HyperworksCfd directory into your path.

Once this is done, you can execute hwCFDReport from any terminal prompt or from a PBS job submission script as follows:
