How to transfer boundary condition from Openfoam to fluent for post processing? When I am transfering solution data of Openfoam to fluent, I am not able to transfer boundary condition (like velocity of fluid at sliding wall). Is there any mean to transfer boundary conditions too to fluent.

There is a fluentUnitNumbers.txt to do the conversion. see the unit numbers that are valid for fluent and put that numbers in the foamDataToFluentDict file. And put that file in the system folder. And use the utility called foamDataToFluent --latestTime. It will create the dat file. for Mesh, You should use foamMeshToFluent.
