2D Profile Data Initialization Problem for Transient Setup
Dear All,

I have an inlet temperature profile defined in radial and circumferential coordinates for a 45 degree section of a turbine.

Whenever I try to initialize my inlet boundary with this, either I am getting an empty contour (in cfx 13) or I am getting a plot which is nonsense and completely different than my original temperature profile plot (in cfx 14).

The model is produced with "mesh transformation/turbo rotation" and inlet is defined as the whole inlet of passages.

I do not think that there is a syntax error with csv file.

Also I cannot use "insert function" because my inlet does not stand perfectly perpendicular to rotation axis (this is why I cannot put just 0 for the 3rd coordinates)

What can be the problem? Or by which alternative method I can achieve this initialization? I would be happy if you share your ideas.

Thank you very much.
