Exporting BC's from one case file to another
 
Hello,

Thanks for your interest in reading my question.

Do you have any idea how we can copy/export the boundary conditions of a case file to another case file? I am asking this because when I make a modification in the geometry or the mesh and I import it in FLUENT, I need to define again all the boundary conditions which can be pain.

Thanks, Mazyar

Itīs possible about the text-user interface.

The comand to export :

file write-bc nameofbc

The comand to import

file read-bc nameofbc

In text UI, type File. Then type write-bc Then input temporary filename, ex: bc-example All material properties and BC will be saved on file you typed above.

Open new cas file. type file then, type read-bc then type temporary filename that you used. ex: bc-example. Then, all BC and material properties you saved will be loaded on your new cas file.

Thanks

it is a good advise i have benefitted. i also have a question related to this, when i do some modification in a geometry and read the case in fluent, i find the zones and id change. how do i keep the zones and id's same in new case and apply the old bc's.

Thanks for your reply.
