Default Export option In Gambit

Hi Ppl,

I am currently working in Mesh generation around a solid cylinder (3D), wherein the flow characteristics over a cylinder is to be studied, I am supposed to read the mesh file developed in Gambit, into Techplot 8.0, so that further computations can be done, I happened to try all of the export options given by Gambit, but nothing turned to be gud enough to read into Techpolt.

Thanks in Advance,

krishna

Hi,

I'm not sure you can export a gambit file into techplot. i know you can read data files from Fluent into techplot but i believe gambit export mainly to CFD packages.

regards

David

Tecplot can only read the data and case file generated by fluent or airpak

Thanks Leung,

So if possible,can u tell me in which software shd i create my mesh so as to read it in Techplot.

Thanks in Advance,

krishna.

Hi Krishna,

Unfortunately I'm not aware of any meshing software where you can export directly to techplot.

What i would do is create my mesh using Gambit, run my computations using Fluent, and then export the Fluent files to Techplot.

i hope this helps

David

PS: i know a former PhD student from RMIT who has done some CFD as well

Hi David,

Thanks a lot for the reply, actually I want to read the mesh files into Techplot, so that I can device my own solver,using some Programming language like C,C++. The other option is I can program in Matlab, again the problem of reading grid into Matlab may pose a problem, and I am not sure which software can do the procees of Reading mesh into Matlab for further use. If u have any idea plz do share...

Thanks in Advance...

krishna.

PS:Plz let me know the person u know in RMIT

you r supposed to do the meshing in gambit

1. Do the meshing in gambit 2. Export the mesh in gambit 3. Open Fluent and read the mesh as case. file (*.cas) 4. If possible, generate a set of solution in fluent

( tecplot can't read case file alone) 5. save all the case and data file (*.cas and *.dat) 6. Use tecplot to import all the (*.cas and *.dat) file 7. After imported into tecplot, you will have your mesh geometry and the solution (eg, vector field), you can only turn on the mesh option without showing and contour/vectors

Hi Krishna,

I really have no clue on how you could process further into reading your mesh into techplot through your own solver. I'm afraid i do not have the expertise.

regards

David

I sent you an email concerning the person from RMIT
