What is the best way in performing such an activity?
Example;
Expression A reads CO at current time,
Probe(CO.Density)@Point 1

How can I read the above in expression B at for instance 1 or more time steps later? This will allow me to compare expression A v B. Thanks.

There is no fully supported way in CFX to do this. It is requested all the time.

But you have two unsupported methods to do it:
1) Write a user fortran routine to do it.
2) Using TRANS_LOOP - search for it in the CFX forum.

But don't forget unsupported means it might not work, it could give unexpected results and it could completely fail.

Thanks ghorrocks, don't know fortran just C++. It's interesting that we are having these discussions and I hope CFX can do something about this through expression language.

Opaque will become famous soon enough
Let us say, Ansys adds support for it w/o knowing your intended use and later you realized that was not enough. What then?

Perhaps if you share the intended use, someone in the forum could explain how to do it using existing features.
