Flow simulation 2016 outputs different values compared to 2014 when reading the same .fld file

Question asked by Pruthvi Jujjavarapu on Jul 13, 2016

Hi everybody,


This is my first question on the SW forums.

I have a couple of conjugate heat transfer simulations run in 2014. Recently I switched to 2016 and I noticed that when I read a .fld file with the 2016 version, it shows different values. I used the compare tool to see the temperatures on a surface and I also had the old values read by 2014 in an excel file. I noticed that the temperatures were different by about 1-2%.


Why does this happen? The results files were not modified in any way after the switch other than the format change.
