Default Exporting data to MATLAB
Posts: n/a
Hi everyone!

I am trying to export data from my simulation to MATLAB to do some plots (2D and 3D) not available in FLUENT 6.1. I've been reading the user's manual, but I can't determine the proper format to get MATLAB to read the data correctly. The best results I've gotten so far are when I use File-->Export--> Data Explorer (.dx). Is this correct, or is there a way that actually makes sense and is easier to determine what data goes with what? Thanks!

Cheers, Ryan

use file->write->profile

select the surface (line/point/volume) and the values you want to postprocess. Fluent writes a file, that looks like that:







Now, use that program, to sort them in matlab:

Hope, it helps

another way would be to the results into ensight format and use vtk together with matlab to get direct access to it. Or you use right away vtk together with python/scipy/numpy which should be almost as powerfull as matlab, but for free

Greetings! Fab

P.S. If you have to stick to matlab syntax, use octave with octaviz ...
