Exporting transient simulation data for evey time step
 
Hi all,

In an unsteady simulation on Fluent and I would need to export a number of variables on a certain plane of the grid (x-,y- and z- velocities) every time step to be post-processed with another software.

So far I've exported data from steady simulations, at the end of them, once converged. However I've never done this before for unsteady simulations.

I do not want to use the auto save feature.

I would much appreciate any light you could give me on this.


Thanks.

Hi,
I'm not sure but I think this capability is added to Ansys FLUENT 13, which you can export your desired data at each time step for other softwares; otherwise you can use journal file for your purpose.
