How to initialize array dynamically to find out grid independent solution

How to initialize array dynamically to find out grid independent solution

How to initialize array dynamically to find out grid independent solution

(OP)
Hi All,

I am trying to figure out how to allocate the size for Array dynamically, as in I want it to be from 0 to a Number till grid independent solution is reached by a Condition.

So below is my program, I run it many time for different values of N. But then I don't want to do this, could you please help me with this


Thank You!

P.S: I have tried different ways but then since the entire program depends on N. I am not able to figure out what to do!

RE: How to initialize array dynamically to find out grid independent solution

Depends on which version of Fortran you're using. If you use from F95 onwards, you could use ALLOCATE to allocate the arrays. F90 is a bit restrictive on its use of ALLOCATE.

Look up the ALLOCATABLE declaration and ALLOCATE function. To avoid memory leaks, DEALLOCATE when you've finished.
