Default Model conversion between codes
Posts: n/a

can anyone give some information about how complex could be to convert an existing model from a code to another (let's say, from StarCD to Fluent or viceversa)?

Has anybody any experience on this?

Thanks a lot,

It depends upon what you mean by conversion.

If you just want the grid (nodes & elements), it's not too hard. Most analysist codes support import/export using NASTRAN format. The caveat here is StarCD polyhedral cells are not supported. But then again, polyhedral cells aren't supported in most (all?) other analysist codes.

If you want boundary conditions, material properties, solver parameters, you will need a code-to-code specific translator. Check the import & export sections of the respective codes & try to find something common to both.
