Wind Engineering (WE-UQ) / Running WE-UQ
« Last post by ali_kh on Today at 08:54:09 AM »
I have installed the App on Windows 10. However, when I RUN, I face with this message: "Failed to run the workflow!!". and when I RUN at DesignSafe, I face with this error: "Local Failure setting up dakota".
Wind Engineering (WE-UQ) / TInF questions
« Last post by on July 08, 2020, 03:55:18 PM »
1.   When the window version is not working I downloaded the linux version of TInF tool. One of my student ran it and she said there are three options for turbulence model selection. When I ran the window version I have only two options. Why the disparity?
2.   For digital filter method option, there are parameters like grid factor, filter factor etc. It may be a good idea to discuss with a sample input what they are theoretically, what their effect and what their range is for application. At this time, I didnít see any discussion in the user manual.

That issue may be platform dependent.  I did not see tat issue on a Mac.  If the issue remains, could you please let us know what OS you are using? Thanks!
this feature request is under development. We have a working prototype Will be include in next release.
Uncertainty Quantification (quoFEM) / Re: Issue - Logo banner, congestion.

Thanks a good suggestion. We will remove logo banner and look into moving status to the bottom. Will be done in next releade (Sept 2020)
Agreed. Having access to quoFEM at the command line would greatly help practitioners in commercial industries incorporate the application into their workflows.
Uncertainty Quantification (quoFEM) / Issue - Logo banner, congestion.

This app has a great and truly well designed aesthetic; however, the banner at the bottom of the screen seems unreasonably large and slightly unwarranted.


  • On some small or wide computer screens, the interface can be somewhat crowded, leaving a short and disproportionate space for the plots in the results tab and at times a nearly unreadable aspect ratio.
  • There is very little justification for any branding on the application itself, considering that it is only seen after the user has already went through the lengthy process of installing and running the program.
  • Branding on the face of an application is rarely seen in commercial software


Remove logo banner entirely, rely on favicon for branding. Reallocate the space for a status bar. If it is possible to make this status bar similar in size to that at the bottom of commercial apps like MS Excel or SAP, than this can considerably alleviate the plot aspect ratio issues in the results tab and create a much cleaner presentation. If branding is absolutely necessary, consider consolidating it to a small corner and drastically reducing the font size of the grant number statement.

There are two open source versions of OpenFOAM. OpenFOAM v1912 is a public version rebased by, which OpenFOAM v6 and v7 (considered in the turbulent inflow tool) are public versions published by The code for the turbulent inflow was developed for's latest releases and you are trying to build for use with an's release. The source code currently works for the linux code released by We have updated the online documentation to make that clearer.

1) We are confirming with docker images if the issue you raise exists for v6 and v7 from exists for the MacOS docker images provided by
2) We will work on providing source code so that TInF will work with's latest release.

We will provide an idea on when item 2 will be resolved once we estimate how much effort is involved.  An update on item 1 will be provided by next week.
