Post processing from OpenFoam to Tecplot
 
Hi guys,
I am trying to post process my openFoam simulation, by using the command

-->foamToTecplot360

The problem is that I encounter the following error message:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FOAM FATAL IO ERROR:

It seems that Tecplot is not compatible with turbulent wall functions...

Do you know how to fix this problem ?

Thank you very much !

A quick and dirty way I do it is convert to Ensight and read that into Tecplot.
Make sure you have the appropriate time solution reconstructed if you ran it in parallel then run foamToEnsight -time [soln_time] (if you just want a specific time).
In Tecplot use the Ensight solution loader and load the .case file.

Thank you....
Anyway, to post process into Tecplot, I needed to add the following line:

libs ("libincompressibleRASModels.so");

in the controlDict file...

Bye...
