Hi
I am using Tecplot 360 and Fire Dynamic Simulator (FDS.6). The numerical simulation model is a 7-story high-rise building.
I have found some problems to see all variables in tecplot ( The only variables that I see are: X, Y, Z, IBlnk, Rho, Rho-U, Rho-V, Rho-W, E). I really don't know why.
I write “WRITE_XYZ=.TRUE. , DT_PL3D=0.01 , PLOT3D_QUANTITY(1:5)='TEMPERATURE', 'U-VELOCITY','V-VELOCITY','W-VELOCITY','HRRPUV' ” on the DUMP line, so some files with suffix .xyz and .q are written out.
What should I do to see other variables in tecplot?
Best regards

You should consider the correct numbers of variables that are stored by FDS.

Thank you for your reply
I am new to FDS, Could you explain it more? I change number in "PLOT3D_QUANTITY(1:15)" but the result doesnt change.

Try first to see if FDS produces the correct output

I see correct output in FDS but not in tecplot.
