Hi guys, it’s my first time posting on this forum so please excuse any faults I might make.
I’m currently working on implementing a “flow-induced” fluid-structure interaction model using the immersed boundary method in foam-extend 4.0. Work is going well however, my simulations are producing far too much data, specifically stl files of the immersed boundary.
From what I’ve been told, the function which writes these files out (writeVTK) needs to be updated and this is where you guys can help me.
I need to gain a better understanding of the VTK format from Paraview and would appreciate any resources you can point me too so that I may do this.
Specifically I need to know
- Can the VTK reader in Paraview take a floating point argument to the file name
- Can the VTK format from Paraview read multiple (point or face?) data, and MAY in fact have the possibility of specifying a time index.
Any help you guys can give is much appreciated.
