Can’t transfer thermal load results from Fluent to Mechanical

      Hi all,


      I'm trying to perform static structural on a solid part that has a specific thermal regime solution it got from Fluent. When trying to import body temperature load into mechanical I get a failed answer (red lightning) and a message saying :


      --Error-- Unexpected end of file


      --Error-- Required Variable 'Load Number on LOAD_NAME' does not exist


      Seems to me like there is just an answer file missing or corrupt in the transfer. But I do get all my thermal results ok if I open Fluent...


      Not sure what to do, if there is a bug somewhere?


      Thanks, I'd appreciate any insight

      Could you share the workbench archive (.wbpz) file so we could take a look at it?

      Hi Rahul,


      Sure, it's a pretty big file though (~17GB), is there a way I could send/transfer it?


      Also, I tried again now when I try to import the thermal load Mechanical just crashes. Any hints of what might be going on?


      Thanks!

      Can you try exporting the Temperature data from CFD-Post and using the External Data module to import the data into Mechanical? Once you export the Temperature data from CFD-Post, check the following video on how to map the data:

      So I realized that the bug was with Mechanical. I deleted the entire mechanical model and restarted, importing CFD results. This worked fine. 


      Thanks for the help!
