We have ran a transient simulation using Ansys CFX-solver 14.5, on a linux machine. We aborted it halfway through, and now we have a bunch of .trn and .bak files. I can view them in the CFX post-processor, but is it possible for me to view them in ParaView? I have googled some, but I can't find a good answer.

I am not very familiar with the OpenFoam-suite but I'm very eager to learn! =)

In the CFX Solver Manager, in the menu Tools you can "Export Results" into different formats, e.g. CGNS, which can be read by Paraview.
