hi,

I have probe data from my simulation. Does anyone know what application opens the vector data (U)? or any application that can convert it to tecplot format?
here is the format of the data:

# x -3.5 -2 -1
# y 0.0333 0.0333 0.0333
# z 0 0 0
# Time
1000.1 (0.0346853 0.00264113 -0.00438583) (0.045667 -0.0254756 -0.00883625) (0.0479257 -0.00194718 -0.00995854)
1000.2 (0.0346853 0.002646 -0.00437969) (0.0461788 -0.0248685 -0.00900286) (0.0482703 -0.00188878 -0.0105974)
...


Thank you

You found a solution for your problem? If not I wrote a pyhton script which reformats the probes of openfoam and write a tecplot file. It is not very handy and fast, because it was my first experience with pyhton but it works. So if you need it, I could provide it to you.

kind regards,
Fabian

Hi Fabian,
Can you send me that code.
Would I be able to extract the data over time for specified point from the techplot file? (I have no previous experince with techplot file thats why I ask it)

Regards,
Awais

I found a big bug in my python script. I don't no if you experience it but if you have time values twice in your probe data the script fails. I tried to fix the bug, but the source code of the script was to creepy. I decided to wrote it completely new.

kind regards,
Fabian

Hi, Fabian!

Could you please give more details about how to use this script? That'll be very helpful for learners like me.
