Hello everybody,

I want to export the temperature field from Ansys Fluent to Ansys Classic for further calculations.

The problem is:
Ansys Fluent calculates cell temperatures whereas Ansys Classic uses node temperatures.

Does anyone knows an approach how to export/use the element temperatures in this case or have an idea how to solve this issue?



Best regards

In some solvers you can tell them whether they use cell-based or node-based approach. An example of such solver setting is discussed here: 18.3.3 Evaluation of Gradients and Derivatives. I have not used this and it is only a guess. If this does not help then we would need to look at post-processing options more closely...

I know it is straightforward to export node values when writing into ASCII format for example. But I dunno how that would help you interface with Ansys.

That's a method to calculate gradients. That's not a method to export node values into Ansys. It's a solver option, not a post-processing option.
