Default Binary File format for Tecplot

Dear CFD People,

I wrote my density based finite volume solver for unsteady flows. I use tecplot to visualize the solutions. Since I get huge solution files for unsteady flows, I intend to write output as "binary" files so that they occupy smaller disc sizes. Can anyone please give me binary file format which is used by Tecplot?

Best regards.

You may want to have a look at the Tecplot Reference Manual Chapter 11. The Binary format specification is not made public by Tecplot Inc., but there is a binary library available for some systems (tecio.a).

using the tecplot library is one option. if you really want to code it on your own, take a look at the source code of 'preplot', a conversion tool which comes with tecplot (including the source).

Thanks a lot for all. I did use tecIO.lib for binary output.

Best regards.
