Hi all,

I am new to fluent, and am currentley working on my third year project at the univeristy of nottingham, uk. I have been told that i can start iterating on an already converged solution (i.e one that has converged on a less refined mesh than the one i am currentley using) to save time.

Can anyone tell me if this is possible? and if so how?

Thanks in advance,

Sophie

Hello Sophie,

Yes it is possible.

It is neither called import/export nor mapping, somehow this option in Fluent is called Interpolation. To get more familiar with the whole process look into Fluent documentation, subchapter: 4.13. Grid-to-Grid Solution Interpolation.

It is nicely explained.

When you try it, let us know how did your interpolation work.

Best,
Krst
