Export from FLUENT to Tecplot Error Message
 
Hi, I am trying to export surface data file from FLUENT to Tecplot for a Multiphase flow problem, but the following message occurred while I load the data files from Tecplot:

Err: Bad or Missing FE cell indices for cell 940

Anyone knows what causes this error message?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Export from FLUENT to Tecplot Error Message
 
A bug in the FLUENT-TECPLOT export filter causes the data to be written as "QUADRILATERAL" element types, even though there are only 3 nodes per element!

Try doing a global replace of "QUADRILATERAL" with "TRIANGLE" in your TECPLOT files - this sometimes works.
