Data import in Fluent?!
When I run a calculation in Fluent, I want to export data (velocity and pressure data from the resulting data file) to a file. Because this data is to be compared to experimental data, the x,y,z coordinates of the data probe points do not allow for the creation of a rake (they are in curved lines for instance). How can I import a set of coordinates into Fluent without having to specify all these points by hand?

I have the same problem, is there anyone who can help us?

Thank you very much.

With journalfiles you can easily specify all these points.
But what type of experiment gives a goog reason to measure along some curve?

Well the probes are placed on a generic 3D surface, not exactly on a curve. I have a file with the probe coordinates and I want to know the value of the pressure at these points. According to you I need "only" to create a journal file in which I "tell" fluent where to find the file with the point coordinates. Do I have to copy and paste the coordinates in the journal?
