Seckin Uslu May 3, 2016 2:57 AM (in response to Dale Jenne)If the text file is not much bigger, you can look at this option
Example of nonuniform force distribution defined by a reference Cartesian coordinate system.
F (X,Y) = A + B*X + C*Y + D*X*Y + E*X^2 + F*Y^2
Where:
F (X,Y) = relative magnitude of force applied at a point with coordinates X and Y for the selected coordinate system.

Re: can I translate a text file into a non uniform pressure distribution?
Dale Jenne May 3, 2016 1:22 PM (in response to Seckin Uslu)Thanks for your reply Seckin. Unfortunately this approach won't work for what I'm trying to do. The data that I'm trying to translate doesn't correlate well with a polynomial, or any other equation for that matter (exponential, logarithmic, etc.). My pressure data is typically coming from a hydrodynamic code or other CFD code, and large pressure concentrations are typical. Due to these concentrations if I put the data into the above format it will lose many of the details I'm trying to capture. Ideally I would be able to transpose my pressure data onto a given face(s) using a predefined coordinate system.
