Dear All,

About 2 weeks ago somebody asked me about creating Lagrangian particles for post-processing in OpenFOAM: basically, take a flow solution, shoot some particles through it and visualise.

Well, I've got one now... but I cannot remember who wanted it.

Please give me a sign,

Hrv

Hi Hrv,

I am trying to do the exact same thing but is not working for me. Can you tell me what you did and how you did it?

Thank you in advance!
Pedro

Hi Hrv

Guess it was me, remember? I was complaining about Paraview 2.4.4, 3.2.1 and 3.3.0 not being able to track some streamlines, which appeared broken without any reason... Either in a VTK export or an Ensight export...

Hello Hrv, Alex

I am currently trying to create Lagrangian particles for post-processing in OpenFOAM and then export them into a VTK database so I can use VisIt to do the visualization. However, VisIt does not recognize the VTK files that I am getting as the output. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Pedro

Hi Pedro,

Really, dunno how to help you... I have been around with the same problem...

Tried an OpenFOAM export to VisIt with no chance, then tried a VTK export to VisIt, again with no chance...

You could try foamToVTK . whatever -ascii ...

but i do not think that this is the issue here, BTW MayaVi also has problems with scalarFields in VTK...

really do not know how to help here...

For as far as i know, one has to stick to Paraview, DX or EnSight...

brgds
