Hello, folks!

I would like to know in how to increase the decimal point numbers of temperature in .out file or when I am exporting the data in CFX-Solver by a monitoring point (cartesian Coordinates = 4.3 [mm], 3.5 [mm], 4.7 [mm])? My problem is described below and the files (hexahedrical mesh files, initial and boundary conditions .CCL file, and temperature field results obtained with my own code from our project group) of this simulation is inside of this post. I´ve been used others trial softwares and I had the results that I want. (but I can´t use others trial softwares, because we intend to use ANSYS CFX even so)

Thanking you in anticipation,

Rogerio.

I´d like that ANSYS CFX 12 will export the temperature results with more decimal points, for example: t[s] T[K] 0.0 273.15000001 0.1 273.15000006 0.2 273.15000007 ... ..... The results of our own code, in C and for heat flux equal to 1.0 [W m^-2], are described below (time in [s] and temperature in [ºC]): title = "T.dat" variables = "time" "Temperature" 2.22000E-01 1.84826E-06 4.44000E-01 5.66649E-06 6.66000E-01 1.08146E-05 8.88000E-01 1.67155E-05 1.11000E+00 2.30114E-05 1.33200E+00 2.95083E-05 1.55400E+00 3.61058E-05 1.77600E+00 4.27536E-05 1.99800E+00 4.94264E-05 2.22000E+00 5.61116E-05 2.44200E+00 6.28030E-05 2.66400E+00 6.94975E-05 2.88600E+00 7.61935E-05 3.10800E+00 8.28902E-05 3.33000E+00 8.95873E-05 3.55200E+00 9.62846E-05 3.77400E+00 1.02982E-04 3.99600E+00 1.09679E-04 4.21800E+00 1.16377E-04 4.44000E+00 1.23074E-04 4.66200E+00 1.29772E-04 4.88400E+00 1.36469E-04 5.10600E+00 1.43167E-04 5.32800E+00 1.49864E-04 5.55000E+00 1.56562E-04 5.77200E+00 1.63259E-04 5.99400E+00 1.69957E-04 6.21600E+00 1.76654E-04 6.43800E+00 1.83352E-04 6.66000E+00 1.90049E-04 6.88200E+00 1.96747E-04 7.10400E+00 2.03444E-04 7.32600E+00 2.10142E-04 7.54800E+00 2.16839E-04 7.77000E+00 2.23537E-04 7.99200E+00 2.30234E-04 8.21400E+00 2.36932E-04 8.43600E+00 2.43629E-04 8.65800E+00 2.50327E-04 8.88000E+00 2.57024E-04 9.10200E+00 2.63722E-04 9.32400E+00 2.70419E-04 9.54600E+00 2.77117E-04 9.76800E+00 2.83814E-04 9.99000E+00 2.90512E-04 1.02120E+01 2.97209E-04 1.04340E+01 3.03907E-04 1.06560E+01 3.10604E-04 1.08780E+01 3.17302E-04 1.11000E+01 3.23999E-04 1.13220E+01 3.30697E-04 1.15440E+01 3.37394E-04 1.17660E+01 3.44092E-04 1.19880E+01 3.50789E-04 1.22100E+01 3.57487E-04 1.24320E+01 3.64184E-04 1.26540E+01 3.70882E-04 1.28760E+01 3.77579E-04 1.30980E+01 3.84277E-04 1.33200E+01 3.90974E-04 1.35420E+01 3.97672E-04 1.37640E+01 4.04369E-04 1.39860E+01 4.11067E-04 1.42080E+01 4.17764E-04 1.44300E+01 4.24462E-04 1.46520E+01 4.31159E-04 1.48740E+01 4.37857E-04 1.50960E+01 4.44554E-04 1.53180E+01 4.51252E-04 1.55400E+01 4.57949E-04 1.57620E+01 4.64647E-04 1.59840E+01 4.71344E-04 1.62060E+01 4.78042E-04 ................ ..............

 July 1, 2009, 13:57 #3 New Member   Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 4 Rep Power: 9 Not sure if this works with 12, but it worked for me with 11: Set an expert parameter monitor digits = where desired number can be anything up to 16. This expert parameter is not available in the menu so you need to do it using the 'edit in command editor' (and may need to introduce a dummy expert parameter to be able to that...) Hope that helps, latslosh.

I´m looking for an explanation about it but I didn´t find it yet!. Thanks. Rogerio. Last edited by rogbrito; July 11, 2009 at 16:14.

 July 17, 2009, 07:33 #5 New Member   Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 4 Rep Power: 9 From your ccl I'm guessing that you just want to export the monitor point data from the solver manager. Normally you only get limited precision with the data so you have to do the following (and this isn't in the user manual...): -introduce an expert parameter (usually I set multigrid to true) The only point of this is that you can now see the 'expert parameter' icon on the left -right-click on the expert parameters and select 'edit in command editor' -now add the 'monitor digits = 16' option to the list and specify your desired precision (16 is the highest) -save, close and proceed as normal. Your numerical results should now have sufficiently high precision... hope that helps, latslosh
