Unhappy Eliminating inital transient in CFD-post FFT analysis

Dear all,

I'm trying to extract the frequency of oscillating in vortex shedding simulation, and to exclude the irregular drag and lift force data in inital transient to get a better FFT result.
The checkbox "Full range of input data" in Fast Fourier Transform, "General" tab of Chart seems allow a specified time range selection of data, but it doesn't show any effect on the FFT result when I change the value of "Min" and "Max". The explanation of this checkbox in ANSYS Help Document is so rough that I cannot find out why it doesn't work. Does any body know if there is something wrong with my operation? Or if I have a misunderstanding of the function of this checkbox?

Thanks a lot

I have never used that function so cannot help you much. It is a new feature and I am a very old person I just export the data and do the FFT in a package like matlab or python or something like that.

The FFT feature in CFD-post seems a little rough with only few input parameters. I'm looking for a free software package with FFT capability.
Thanks again for your kindly reply Glenn.
