Hello,
After importing the OpenFOAM results into ParaView, selecting

"File->save data"

a "configure Wirter"-dialog-box comes out, giving 3 available opts:

"Points"
"Cells"
"Field data"

I assume, "Cells" refers to "Cell-Centers", "points", mesh-vertices,
but does someone know what the "Field data" means?


thank you in advance

I think it corresponds to the variables such as p,p_rgh,U etc.

hi, TahsinG,

thanks for the reply.

well, using the opt, "points" or "cells", the data of p and U are also saved, which could also be considered as data of "field".


Actually in e.g. "cavity"-case, I tried to save using the opt "field data", but it generated an empty file, so I don't know that it is


thanks
