Time information in VTK

Cheers NGSolve Forum,

I have a need to output time information into Paraview for an adaptive time-stepping scheme implemented for a discontinuous Galerkin incompressible Navier-Stokes solver I have developed in NGSolve.

Does anyone have any tips or tricks for getting time information for saved VTK solutions out of NGSolve and into Paraview?



You can set up a metafile for paraview. For that you would need to convert the .vtk output to .vtu. See the discussion here ( VTKOutput - include time information - Kunena ) for further details.
