BFINT command for interpolating temperatures

      Can the BFINT command be used to interpolate temperatures without solving the model?

      No. BFINT is a /POST1 command, so the model must be solved and a .rst file must be available. An alternative method to interpolate data between models is using the mapping option of the MOPER command. Mapping is done using four arrays and the "MOPER,parR,par1,MAP" option. The required arrays are: 1.three-column array that stores the coordinates of the input data. 2.array that stores the data (e.g., temperature) that corresponds to the coordinates stored in the first array. 3.three-column array that stores the designation coordinates for the interpolated data. 4.array where the "*MOPER, parR, par1, MAP" command writes the interpolated data. More details on *MOPER command can be found in MAPDL Command Reference Manual (help/anscmd/HlpC_MOPER.html).
