Hi,
I am new to OpenFOAM. I have good knowledge and experience with ANSYS.

I am comparing performance of ANSYS and OpenFoam. So I am solving a problem in OpenFOAM and want to do postprocessing in ANSYS as I know it well.

How can I convert OpenFoam results to ANSYS and do postprocessing in ANSYS? Is there any command?

Thank you

Cheers,
Achinta

HI achinta;

foamDataToAnsys command is not available in OpenFOAM.you can convert foamDataToFluent and you can do the post processing in fluent.

Regards,

Naveen

Hi Naveen,
I came to know that 'foamToCGNS' could be used to convert foam data and do post processing in ANSYS. But we have to download a setup file and the procedure is not clear. Any idea about this command ?

Thank You,
Achinta

HI achinta;

foamToCGNS converter only converts the mesh file without data which as been converted. you should search for foamDataToCGNS then you can use ansys for post processing.
