XY plots in Tecplot
Dear all,

I am trying to make XY plots in Tecplot (v. 9) with Fluent (v. 6) data. I am completely new to Fluent, but have used Tecplot before.

I imported the Fluent data (from a regular 2D grid) using the Fluent data loader in Tecplot. The contour plots are OK, but I can't make sensible XY-plots. When I try to plot, say, X velocity as a function of Y, I get many curves on top of each other, and Tecplot says that the maximum "J index" is 1, while I guess it should have been the number of nodes in the Y-direction.

Is this a known problem, and if so, what can be done about it?

Thanks in advance.

Regards, Svend Tollak Munkejord

Re: XY plots in Tecplot
try to store data in following format and then plot it open(1,file='data') do j=1,Jmax do i=1,imax


enddo write(1,*) enddo close(1)

You will get correct plot.

Re: XY plots in Tecplot
How do I apply this to the Fluent data? I do not have the Fluent source code.
