I asked the tecplot-community the same thing and got the answer that I could just do it myself - great.

However, I have put together a starcd macro which saves some stuff and a fortran program which afterwards create a tecplot file. Although not very general, I believe that you should be able to work from there.

Let me know if you are interested in the two files

Hi,

One thing I think you can do is to export your data set to the plot3d file format from STAR-CD. (this can both be structured and unstructured data)

And then import the plot3d file into tecplot. It has a facility to import this file format.

Hope this help.

Best Regards

Dan-

I'm interested in the macro and fortran code that you came up with to do some visualization in Tecplot. Any chance I could bother you for them?

Recently, a Tecplot output module has been developed to provide output from STAR-CD in the Tecplot format. This module is currently in a "bug-fix" patch of Prostar, since a standard release is not scheduled for some time. The patch is available and can be obtained by contacting Adapco customer support. Tell them that you need the Tecplot output module, which is available in 3.100a.510 or greater.

The process is to call Technical Support at Adapco. Dial (631) 549-2300 and press 4 for tech support. Tell the support representative that you need a Prostar bug-fix patch that is numbered 3.100a.510 or greater. The patch will contain the Tecplot output option. If the person you talk to does not know about the patch, ask him to contact Steve Feldman at Adapco x121.

I have used the tecplot export option of STAR-CD for a week now and it works fine. Only problem is that you cannot specify which variables he should export. Assuming and perfect gas you can get all variables (total pressure/temperature and Mach number) but it doesn't export these results. Probably to keep the file size to a minimum. The fileformat is ASCII. I haven't tried yet to exprot results from simulations using baffles. I heard this could pose a problem with visualisation of f.i. pressures (different values on both sides of a baffle) But it works for me now. I also work with CFX 5 which doesn't have these export options (yet and in the near future).
