I have run a transient simulation of a Pelton Turbine. I have divided areas on the surface of the turbine bucket and named them as I need. Now I need to plot the average pressure values of each named surface with respect to time. The Fluent plot allows me to plot pressure values with respect to distance and only for the last case file.
I can get the values manually by uploading each time step solution file but there must be an easier way!!!
Help me out guys.

I made the following batch file and automated the process for each surface. But i still had to run each result file. The graph was created in MS excel.
