Import solution from a Fluent simulation
Dear Foamers,

I have a steady solution obtained with Fluent and I would like to know if it is impossible to import it, in order to use it as initial solution for an unsteady simulation with OF.

Of course, the mesh is the same.

Thanks a lot for help.

There is a tool in the 1.6-ext called "fluentDataToFoam" which should do the job.
So you need to try the 1.6-ext version, or try to copy & compile in your 2.1 version.
