Good afternoon,

I am a 3rd year MEng civil engineering student from the uk. I am currently working on my 30 credit project which is to design a contact mixing tank for wastewater treatment works.
The first part of my project is to generate the mesh of the tank and run a cfx simulation to determine the pressures on the walls of my mesh.
I have generated my geometry and mesh for the tank in ansys workbench, inputted the boundry and flow conditions in cfx -pre and ran it in cfx-solver. I have been told by my supervisor that my aim is to generate a text file with all the nodes of my mesh and the corresponding pressures acting on each node. I am finding it hard however to complete this final part and determine in cfx-post the pressures on each node of my mesh in a text file.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated, thanks for your time

If I were you I'd explore the export facility in post.
Top 4 tips
1. Knowledge is everything and Ignorance is dangerous.
2. Understand your limitations and try to eliminate them.
3. Get yerself a bike and hoon the chuffer. You will soon learn why dogs like to hang their heads out the car window.
4. Please before asking any questions on how to run simulations in CFX, go though all the tutorials
