If you want to do this in Fluent you can structure your data like an 'interpolation' file and read it in Fluent.

go to file interpolate menu and write out a sample inlerpolate file. use the same format for your experiment data. read the data back as an interpolate file. you don't have to match the exact locations, fluent will interpolate between the data points.
