saving Transient/Unsteady data of multiple surface integrals in single file
 
Hello,

I am stuck with a very basic doubt in PROCESSING of data, my simulations are running fine.

I want to save transient data (at every time step) of SURFACE INTEGRALS in a single file (preferably .txt) because I want to post process that in MATLAB.

The way I do it now is that I have created surface monitors but you CANNOT write data for multiple surfaces (though you might select many in each surface monitor it but it does not write them, it will give you only data of one such surface). So if you want to monitor 9 surface integrals you will have to create 9 surface monitors and store data in 9 different files.

The problem is that I have done over 500 simulations and I am monitoring 9 variables in each simulation and hence files are getting mixed up.

Somebody please suggest a way out! I will be really grateful.
