Fluent data format
It appears that the fluent 5.5.14 mesh files are in ASCII file format and the data files are in binary. Is there any way of outputting the data fiel as ASCII? Can fluent 5.5 files be saved as fluent 4.5 files? (i'm prertty sure 4.5 data files are ASCII)

any help would be much appreciated

many thanks khalil

Re: Fluent data format
Uncheck the "write as binary" option in the save dialog.

Re: Fluent data format
If you get brave you can start fiddling with the data values. I guy in the office was looking at using Fluent as a postprocessing tool for his experimental data. You get a different perspective on CFD when you can write your name in the fluid domain.
