Visualization of baffles with Tecplot
 
Hello everybody,

I' m running an analysis with StarCD. During the post-processing, I can not visualize the baffles as boundary with Tecplot. Could anybody suggest a solution or may be a trick for this?

Thanks, Tunc

You can export the surface cells and put them in a separate Tecplot zone.

Ok. But how can I do that with StarCD? Or you mean to export surface cells inside Tecplot?

Thanks for your help. Tunc

When you export the results from ProStar, only the fluid cells are exported. The baffle cell table will have to be separately exported, and appended to the star.dat file as a second zone, referring the original vertex set. I usually write the complete star.cel, and star.vrt file, along with the data I want. Then I use an external application I put together to sort the cell types and write them out into a Tecplot file, sorted by zones.
