save lift and drag convergence histories in fluent14
 
Hello my friends,
I work with Fluent 14 and I want to save lift and drag convergence histories; I have used the monitor option and acted write option too. Therefore, two files have existed but only result of present time is saved in the files and actually, I lost the result of other times steps.
Do you have any solution for it? I want to save all lift and drag coefficient in the files according time to plot convergence history.

Hi!
if u want to plot Cd or Cl per iteration history, i have a solution for u.

go to monitors and create Drag. in opened dialog box, active Write and then type .txt in front of the file name.
finally go to work directory and from dp0 > FFF > fluent, u can access iteration history in a txt format.

Good luck!

Hello again
I did do as you said but the problem is that only one Cl per last iteration is saved in the generated txt file. All of text in the file is as below:
"Lift Convergence"
"Flow Time" "Cl"
2.58750e+00 6.19072e-01


but I need Cl per every iteration. May I make any comments for this problem?

cheers,
