 March 19, 2008, 16:06 how to realize the following data input? #1 Steven Guest   Posts: n/a hi, I am running a transit simulation. The temperature profile on a wall is a function of time. Say, we have 10 temperature profile ASCII files (format: x,y,z,T)for 10 time step points with same time interval. Now, we use 10 time steps and want to simulate each timestep with appropriate temperature profile from external file at that particular time. How to do it? I know how to do it when it is a steady state simulation (interpolation from file). But I hate to run 10 seperate simulations treating flow as quasi steady state. I want to do simulation with one transit run with CFX reading 10 files automatically for each timestep. I appreciate any help and an outline of procedure. Thanks a lot!
