6.3.13 FLUENT 4 Case Files

If you have a FLUENT 4 case file and you want to run a FLUENT simulation using the same grid, import it into FLUENT using the File/Import/FLUENT 4 Case... menu item, as described in Section  4.11.16. FLUENT will read grid information and zone types from the FLUENT 4 case file.

FLUENT 4 may interpret some pressure boundaries differently from the current release of FLUENT. Check the conversion information printed out by FLUENT to see if you need to modify any boundary types.

To manually convert an input file in FLUENT 4 format to an output file in the current FLUENT format, enter the following command:

utility fl42seg input_filename output_filename

After the output file has been written, you can read it into FLUENT using the File/Read/Case... menu item, as described in Section  4.2.
