Hi hrv i m using dieselFoam tutorial on OF-1.5 and i wanna view the results on Fluent (I already have seen them on paraFoam)...now problem i m facing is that AFTER GETTING .msh and .dat files BY using foamMeshToFluent and foamDataToFluent WHEN I LOAD THESE FILES RESPECTIVELY IN FLUENT 6.3.26 I M NOT ABLE TO SEE RESULTS THOUGH THESE FILES HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFULLY LOADED. Whether additional parameters i must set to post process my case in fluent brfore loadinf it to Fluent?/?. I tried k epsilon model bedore loading .dat file on Fluent but still i didnt get results..Diesel Foam uses Euler Lagrange approach.... "

I ALSO noticd that in .MSH FILE obtained by foamMeshToFluent didnt include boundary conditions.I already have saved .msh file as .cas files but still no boundary conditions are set in (Define---->Boundary conditions).
i m doing MS process Engineering from islamabad and i am interested to post process OF results on different tools.....plz help me out

Hallo,

Importing results into Fluent seems to work fine but did anyone manage to do it in CFX-postproceossor?

So far I've managed to read in mesh in CFX-Pre but no success in CFX-post.

thanks,
Przemek

hello
Here I recently tried foamDataToFluent & foamMeshToFluent.But my fluent can not read them.It told me there is not a case file.
It didn't generate any case file.
Can you tell me why?
Thanks.

dear everyone..

i have followed the instructions given here for the viewing of an openfoam in fluent..

I have also saved the .msh file as case in my fluent and i have finally run my .dat file..

i have my whole system red colour in display->contour->velcity.
Quote:
read_thread_data_section: invalid thread id 18.
Skipping data sub-section 2 for thread 1. Wrong size (3 != 2)
Skipping data sub-section 2 for thread 10. Wrong size (3 != 2)
read_thread_data_section: invalid thread id 11.
Skipping data sub-section 2 for thread 12. Wrong size (3 != 2)
read_thread_data_section: invalid thread id 13.
In my .dat case in fluent i notice the above.

2- why does i have a lot of .dat files? Am i not supposed to have found only 1?

i would be really grateful to anyone who answer my queries

regards
zaynah

Hi everyone,

i've tried to use the command "foamDataToFluent" as described in here, and i got ".dat" files for each time step of my simulation. Afterwards, i wanted to load the last step of ".dat" files to CFX5, but i got an warning message as follows:

" Note that for files other than CFX-Solver Results, global ranges are calculated for the used variables and the currently loaded timestep only. As more timesteps are loaded, global variable ranges are adjusted dynamically. Tip: To avoid dynamic range updates, you can use local variable ranges, or turn on pre-calculation of global ranges for all timesteps and all variables in : Edit>Options>CFD-Post>Files"

once i click on OK after this warning message, then i got the error message as follows :

"SEVERE
Operation failed. (System exception: Invalid fluent case file) "

So i am thinking of that the reason of this error message is the version i use in OpenFoam or in CFX. i am using OpenFOAM 2.1.x, and CFX14.0. so my question is, does anyone of you managed to do the conversion with those mentioned versions of O.F and CFX? or do you have any idea what the mistake may be?
thanks

Hello;

I am able to export the data (I use openFoam 2.2.0), but I cannot export just the last timeStep, it always transform every single timeStep.

OK, I could delete all the data I don't need, but the point is that it doesn't do what it is supposed to do... I have changed the ControldDict file, changing the startFrom to latestTime:
startFrom latestTime;
startTime 0;
stopAt endTime;
endTime 10000;
deltaT 1.0;
writeControl timeStep;
writeInterval 1000;
purgeWrite 0;
writeFormat ascii;
writePrecision 10;
writeCompression uncompressed;
timeFormat general;
timePrecision 6;
graphFormat raw;
runTimeModifiable true;
I have tried also setting the startTime to 10000, but it anyway exported every timestep.

Any clue??

Thank you very much!

Hi Dogan,

Did you manage to solve the problem? I could open my .cas and .dat in Fluent but I am facing the same problems that you wrote.

Please advise. Many thanks.

Best regards,
Pang
