Hi all

Is there a way to export data from OpenFoam to CFX post for post processing?

foamToCGNS is a standard utility in openfoam-1.7.1?

Why I can't find it?

linnemann will become famous soon enough
foamToCGNS is part of the turbomachinery OSIG for 1.5-dev.

It will work for 1.6-ext with a little modification.

The easiest way to get from OF to CFX without relying on thirdparty tools is using

foamMeshToFluent (for the mesh only)

CFX can import fluent mesh. (not polyhedra cells)

Dear chyn wey lee
I have successfully transfer the result data from the foam to CFX. The procedure is that first of all you have to use utility foamDataToFluent and this will convert the data in Fluent readable format.Then you can open the fluent and first import the mesh i.e fluent.msh format mesh and then import the file obtain by
utility foamDataToFluent.

In fluent there is an options to convert the fluent data to CFD Post with this you can transfer the data from the Fluent to CFX.

If you find any difficulties then let me know.

Cheers.....

Dear Kurne,

Is there any way to make the conversion without going through Fluent? I do not have Fluent and this is the reason why I would rather convert the data straight from OpenFOAM to ANSYS CFX.

Thanks!

Regards,

JosÚ

HI Everybody,

I am also interested in a possibility to convert OpenFoam Results to CFX readable file for postprocessing! Is there a way?

Jose have you found something?

Maybe a detour via foamToCGNS?

Edit: Or as I learned here foamDataToCGNS?

But unfortunately there a just two threads containing the keyword "foamDataToCGNS"

Do I have to download the script and compile it? Like: tecplot
But I dont find any information...

Hi,
I've build cgnsToFoam, foamToCGNS and related libraries(libcgns, libcgnsoo) from source code for 1.5-dev without modification.
These utilities worked fine on my PC.

Hi,
did you mean that you built foamToCGNS on your computer for your 1.6-ext?

Sorry my English is not that fluent..

Hello,

I am using foamToCGNS, the mesh is created in OpenFoam by SnappyHexMesh, but when run foamToCGNS, error happens like :

Wrong number of vertices in cell
expected 4,5,6, or 8, found 0

From function foamToCGNS
in file writeCGNS.H at line 219.


Does CGNS deal with polyhedral cell created by snappyHexMesh? If not, is there some other way to convert OF mesh to CFX?

Thank you so much!
