Hello,

I plan to postprocess my data from OpenFOAM with AVS/Express.
I found on the opencfd website that it is possible :
http://www.opencfd.co.uk/openfoam/in...PostProcessing

Then, I looked for something like FoamToAVS, without any success.
Even in the sourceforge web site, there is nothing for AVS/express.
Does anybody know how is called the data converters from OpenFOAM to AVS, maybe it is not so straightforward ?
Or it might be a mistake in the opencfd web site ?

Any ideas, how I can do that please ?

Regards,

Cedric

Hello again,

I tried to use the foamToFieldview9 which create a *.uns files. It's a Fieldview-UNS format (binary) file with both mesh and field but, there is no way to read it in AVS.

Then, I found that a VTK reader is avaiable on AVS. But FoamToVTK create binaries files which are not usefull in AVS.

Maybe someone has more ideas, cause I haven't got any more yet ?

I guess that the format FoamToVTK uses is not the most correct ... when i try to create foamToVTK . myTestCase -ascii, the output is not binary... nevertheless, mayaVi, a vtk reader, cannot access the CFD data, nor can VisIt...

Anyway paraFoam . myTestCase successfully displays all the CFD quantities in myTestCase...

Thank you Alexandre for your answer.

You're right, with the -ascii option it's better but, it's still not working, AVS "can't read the number of Cells".

Anyway, I will work first with paraFoam which is working fine for me also.
