Hello everyone
Is it possible to export Ansys fluent results to OpenFOAM? I've conducted a 2D steady state simulation using Ansys fluent, Now I need to export at least the velocity field to OpenFOAM in order to solve for a passive scalar in OpenFOAM (I have no access to fluent & I don't want to use it).

Any ideas please?
