Fluent 4, Grid File Format
Hi guys,

I need to realize an application that reads in a Fluent 4 grid file (structured), where I can get the documentation for this format ?

Re: Fluent 4, Grid File Format
Depending upon you application you will probably find it easier to write out a Fluent v4 universal file. This file can store the locations of the cell nodes (x,y,z) as well as solution data interpolated to these nodes.

Reading this file is relatively easy and its structure is documented in the Fluent v4.4 manuals, vol. 4, Appendix A.

If you specifically need something in the grid file or other things from the cas/dat files I think its easier to write a udf to output this data from the internal variables directly to your own file, instead of trying to work out what the format of these files is - since they are not documented.

Regards Greg
