export expression from CFX post
I want to be able to export (to .csv) single values calculated using CEL expressions in CFX post.

For example if I have the following expression:

Force1 = force_z_Coord1()@Body1

I would like to export just the value of 'Force1'. If i use export in CFX post I seem to only be able to export a variable at a location i.e. it will be exported for every cell of the mesh on the location 'Body1'.
I assume i must be missing something quite simple where I can export single parameter values?

You should be able to modify this PERL script to do what you want.
It exports 'count()@Default Domain' to a .txt file, just copy/paste it into the command editor.


!$outfile = "tmp.txt";
!open(OUT, ">$outfile");
!$nodes = count("Default Domain");
!print OUT $nodes;

Or make a table with your CEL expression, save as .csv, done.

Thanks, I think saving a csv from a table will be the most useful one for me.

Querry for CFX post.
Hello everyone,
I need help for plotting cross channel plots of absolute flow angle in ANSYS CFX Post. Also how to create plot for pressure ratio vs blade span (from hub to shroud tip).
