to run a transient or quasi-static analysis, one of the last steps in the simulation setup on SimScale is always the definition of how/which time steps shall be computed as well for which ones the result field shall be written. For flow simulations this is currently done via two options:
- Which time steps are computed is defined by Start and End time as well as the step length
- For writing, one has a bunch of options, but the most common one is to specify an interval in which results shall be written for later post-processing
So the image below says basically that 1000 time steps of 1 sec shall be computed and only the last one (1000th) shall be written (classical setting for a steady-state analysis).
Here the question: I think this could be done more intuitive to make sure that users do not run into problems. Especially if one specifies too many time steps to be written, the results are very hard to handle. Do you have any suggestions on how this part of the interface could be done more intuitive?
Looking forward to your suggestions!
