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

      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.

       

      Thanks,

      Pru.
