excel in fluent
 
I would like to input excel files (profiles) in fluent .How to do this?
Is there any format?

Fluent is not a pre-processor. It does not make sense.

You should GAMBIT, ICEMCFD, Pointwise or etc. to generate meshes.

You should have a look at relevant tutorials.

Hi,
Are you talking about geometry of velocity/pressure profiles, or even transient profiles?

profiles
 
There is an option called "initialize profile data" in CFX where you can define velocity profiles in a csv format. Is it possible to do the same in fluent.?

You can create profile file; I think in the csv file you have couple of velocity-time values; then refer to the following link:

http://hpce.iitm.ac.in/website/Manua...ug/node303.htm

For example this is a profile to generate transient velocity input:

Code:

((profile transient 20 0)
(time 0 0.01 0.07 0.08 0.11 0.15 0.2 0.23 0.32 0.37 0.43 0.5 0.55 0.67 0.7 0.75 0.79 0.87 0.9 1.0)
(velocity 0.37 0.36 0.61 0.61 0.57 0.47 0.4 0.37 0.37 0.36 0.36 0.38 0.38 0.35 0.35 0.36 0.36 0.35 0.35 0.36))

You will have linear interpolation between points.
