Hello All,

I was doing a Standard backward step case. I have set up the case and simulation is also running.

I have Experimental data available as,
experimentData\inletData.dat
kasagiExpUMean
kasagiExpURMS

in the folder.

I have also calculated average velocity with the function FieldAverage.

Now I want to compare the results with given experimental data.

How can I do that ? I read that I can do it with sampleDict. But I do not know How to execute/prepare it ?

has anybody ever came across it ?

Hello,

regarding to your other post [#1], it looks like you have figured it out already. Am I right or do you still need help with your problem?

Kind regards
Mike
