How can steady-state case results be the initial conditions for a transient model in Ansys Fluent?

Here we present a workflow for using steady-state results as initial conditions for a transient model.

1. In the steady-state case folder, you should see an interpolation file created (.ip). This is the file you need to upload the results as initial conditions in the other case:

2. Open the new case (Transient) set-up solver and import the .ip file as follows:

2.1 Click on "File," and after that, click "Interpolate,"

2.2 Select the cell zone that you want to interpolate and click on "read":

2.3 Select the .ip file and click "ok":

3. That's it; you should have the results already uploaded.
