Hi,


I am running a unsteady simulation. Is it possible to give plot of temperature and velocity contours after end of unsteady simulation in every time? Is it possible to give video after unsteady simulation for observing variation of velocity and temperature in during time? If so, How?


I am grateful that guide me in this case.


Thanks.

No it's not possible because the data file contains only the information at the current time-step. You must set up any graphics and/or export all the variables beforehand. So if you forget to do the setup, you must rerun the simulation.

Hi,


I created some animation in the part of calculation activities of Ansys fluent (solution animation). Then, I can export video file in results part of Ansys fluent. Now, I have some questions:


Is it possible to see temperature contour in t=5s or t=80s in Ansys Fluent?

In CFD Post, Is it possible to do it? If so, How? when I go the following way in CFD Post:


File>Load results>importing cas and data of Fluent>Timestep selector


With doing this work, I can't create temperature contours in different times.


In fact, there are not different times in timestep selector for selecting them. Why?


Thanks.

There's a few ways to go about this but you need to save the data at those time-steps.


Easiest way would be to set up automatic saving of the .dat file every x time-steps. Then you can load whatever time-step that you want in CFD-post and see all the data at that time-step. Doing it this way uses up a lot of HD space.



You can also export data on specific planes and only specific variables. But I think it's easier to save the entire .dat file if you're having trouble.
