Sharing Data in Tecplot Files

Data Sharing in Tecplot Files

“Sharing is good, and with digital technology, sharing is easy.” –Richard Stallman. Tecplot divides datasets into zones. These zones may represent different areas of the physical domain, the same physical domain at different time steps, or different results that you may wish to compare. The zones may also have different dimensionality; for example there may be a mixture of 3D volume zones that contain field variables and 2D surface zones […]

Appending Data to Tecplot Files

Append Data to Tecplot SZL Files

“Time is an Illusion.” ― Albert Einstein. High fidelity CFD solvers are generally iterative in nature. They move the solution incrementally forward in time (or pseudo time for steady-state solutions) computing each new solution based on the previous solution. CFD engineers often write a snapshot of the solutions at periodic time steps so that they can follow its progress. CFD engineers want to verify that: The boundary conditions are behaving […]

Using the Loci-Chem Extract Utility to Create a Tecplot SZL File

By Tecplot’s Chief Technical Officer, Scott Imlay, PhD “In mathematics you don’t understand things. You just get used to them.” — Johann von Neumann I’ve written several blogs on Tecplot’s new SZL technology and how it speeds up the visualization of large CFD data sets by loading only those subzones (small chunks of data) that are needed for the desired visualization. We’ve demonstrated dramatic speed-ups for large data sets. For […]

Working with Unsteady Results

Today’s low-cost computational resources have fundamentally changed the way we approach modern technical challenges. In the world of CFD, one of the most dramatic changes has been the increasing use of unsteady (transient) simulations, which allows engineers and scientists to study moving machinery and turbulence flows more effectively. This article is designed to show you how to work more easily with unsteady results using the improved quantitative capabilities in the […]
