transient temperature distributionT(x,y,t)
hello .I have a simple 2D conduction heat in a solid(a rectangular plane surface ).(no vonvection and radiation) and I have take a stationary heat flux throught an edge as BC. I can display the stationary teperature distribution T(x,y) but I want to obtain the temperature distribution at any time T(x,y,t).DOES any body tell me what to do please???thanks

Re: transient temperature distributionT(x,y,t)
FLUENT doesn't keep in memory the value of each variable at each past time step.

If you want T(x,y,t) you have to save a dat file, for example after a costant number of steps and then postprocess them in order to obtain the data you need.

Hi :)

how can I do it?
hello. can you tell me how to use UDF to save the data file and post process it? and what time step you mean?? can yopu be more clear please??....THANKS.....

Re: how can I do it?
you dont need a udf for taht just use file --> autosave

also, i think animation feature will be really useful for what you are trying to do.

Re: how can I do it?
I agree with co2, you can activate the Autosave option in the File -> Write -> Autosave menu.
