contours fluent ----->> tecplot
Hello CFD Friends :)
could you tell me please how to export contours of temperature for example from fluent to tecplot , and from matlab to tecplot . I want to print the two contours on the same figure in order to compare results of fluent with results of matlab
have a nice day Friends
Thank you so much .

One can load Fluent data into Tecplot 360 via the Fluent data loader, and in a separate frame one could load the Matlab data into Tecplot 360 via this mat2tecplot program described here:
Once the two frames are in Tecplot and contoured to the same scale, one could then make one of the frames have a transparent background and then put the transparent frame on top of the other contour diagram.
This might provide the comparison you are seeking.
