Many native CAE
software split the simulation data into model and result files.
An example to this is, the Fluent .cas and .dat files. The .cas
file predominantly consists of the mesh, boundary conditions and
initial conditions where as the .dat file contains the
simulation results. In such cases, VMoveCAE supports appending
results from a result file to the mesh from the corresponding
model file. This feature is available only for certain file
types. When result appending is available, the “Append Results”
tool and the “File/Append Results” menu items gets enabled after
loading the model. The following steps describe how to append
the results in VMoveCAE.
VMoveCAE and Load a Fluent .cas file: Start VMoveCAE and
load a fluent .CAX file from the samples directory. One can
observe that VMoveCAE displays only parts as no result are
available in the .cas file. It can also be observed that
the “Append Results” tool is enabled to append the results
from .dat file.
- Click on “Append Results”
tool: To append results from the .dat file, click on the
“Append Results” tool. This will open a file open browser as
shown in the following diagram. Select the corresponding .dat
file and load it.
- VMoveCAE displays the
appended results: VMoveCAE now displays the appended
results as shown in the following figure.
parts and results and save CAX: Filter the parts and
results as desired and save the CAX file.
