 December 7, 2005, 15:24 saving transient data for 1 point & 1 variable #1 REH Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links I would like to save the velocity data for a single node over a series of time steps so that I can take a FFT and find the frequency of oscillation using CFX 10.0. Can anyone help me with this?

 December 7, 2005, 16:27 Re: saving transient data for 1 point & 1 variable #2 Rui Guest   Posts: n/a In Post, create a Chart. On the Chart tab select Type = Time, on the Chart Line tab select the Location (a Point that you have to already had created) and select the Variable. You'll get a graphic with the Variable values at the time instants available in Post. You may export the data. If you want to have the data at every timestep, in Pre create a Monitor Point. Regards, Rui

Pull up the plot for the monitor point history in the Solver Manager, right-click on the plot and select "Export Plot Data". This will allow you to export a csv (comma separated value) file that Excel can open up. Mike

I shouldn't be hard as post adopted PERL language. Of course you can try Rui's method but I never like the way Post do the 2D graph....

In addition, once the run is completed you can load your results file in CFD-Post, and create a chart of the same monitor point. See options for Charts. Once the chart for your monitor point is created, you can also evaluate the FFT on that data series. Good luck.

If I would like to save the velocity data for a line over a series of time steps. What can I put instead of vertex average in the report type. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks
