Does Fluent_13 accept newest saved file?
Hi :d

I am using personal computer (i7 blah) for my analysis

, and now I realize that I need more powerful computer resource.

Recently, I got a account to use cluster (pretty nice)

here is a problem, a version of the fluent installed on the cluster is 13

but that of my personal computer is 14

does the cluster having fluent_13 accept my(version of 14) cas & dat files?

P.S. I apologize about my terrible English, I'm not good at this language :D

No, I don't think this is possible (at least it's not with previous releases). The good news is: you can run on the cluster with V13 (setting up the job with a journal file) and post process with V14! That's what I did when we had a cluster.

Hi Mario, thanks to your help :D

the procedure is like this;

I can throw my job(cas, dat files) to the supercomputer(having fluent_v13)

then he works for me, and return the results (dat file)

then, I can draw colorful contours, vector fields etc....(with v14)


It seems impossible that fluent(v13) can't read the cas & dat files(v14)

then I have to downgrade the fluent :z....

anyway, I wan'na say thanks to your kindness again
