how to put post-processing values in a text file
 
Hello, I ran my simulation and get some results. I managed to plot some graphs (pressure along a spline) on the screen, and I need to put those values in a text file to study them (on Excel). If I put my graphs in a .plot file, and read the file (like any text file, on Windows, not with StarCD), the values in it doesn't seem to be the values which are in my registers. Could someone help me on that problem? Thanks in advance.

PS: More precisely, I'd like to calculate the pressure integral on a particular section, which I don't think it's possible directly on StarCD. (actually, I need to calculate the lift and drag coefficients of my system).

You can wrie them of a graph register. It is possible to write the graph registers into a file (see help or GUI, I do not remember exact command) Plot-File is some kind of CD-adapco own format for pictures. If you need all results get them from post-registers. You can also integrate pressure there....

Taking results to Excel is not that kind of an good idea. Excel is limited to something below 64k lines....
