Import Smoke data from other Simulation Tool
« on: January 21, 2019, 09:20:56 am »

Hello Dear Pathfinders

I saw that Pathfinder can visualize Smoke [and fire] from FDS fire simulations.

I wonder if I could import Smoke [and fire] data for visualisation computed with other tools. At least it should be possible, if I generate the input data in the FDS Smokeview format? Which files should I generate? Only s3d? Or also boundary data?

I do fire simulations with StarCCM+ and can compute for instance smoke concentrations, optical density, extinction coefficients, temperatures, etc.

Thanks and greetings!
