 There are several ways to import user data into CFD-Post. Data can be imported as line or surface data: 1. File > Import > Import Surface or Line Data and select the file, or : 2. Insert > Location > User Surface Specify a name and select the file. The data formats are of the form: [Name] Experimental Data Set 1 [Data] Node No., X[m], Y[m], Z[m], Press.[Pa], Vel.[m/s], Temp.[R] 0, -0.3, -0.3, -1.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.224, 1, -1.0, -1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 2.0, 1.35987, 2, -1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 3.0, -0.45, 3, -0.3, 0.3, -1.0, 0.0, 4.0, -5.82, 4, 0.3, -0.3, -1.0, 2.0, 5.0, 9.6323, 5, 1.0, -1.0, 1.0, 3.0, 6.0, 7.1859, 6, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 3.0, 7.0, -4.656234, 7, 0.3, 0.3, -1.0, 2.0, 8.0, 2.1237, 8, 0.0, 0.0, 2.0, 5.0, 9.0, 6.456, [Faces] # Faces are defined by their points, represented by the point IDs: # 3 points for a tri-face and 4 points for a quad-face. # The face normal is defined by the order of the points, so define # all points in either a clockwise or counterclockwise direction # to obtain a uniform face normal 0 - 3 # The face above is created from points 0 through 3 7 - 4 4 1 0 # Tri- and quad-faces may be combined 4 5 1 6 3 2 6 7 3 0 3 7 4 2 1 8 6 2 8 5 6 8 1 5 8 Note 1: Normally the first 3 variables will be X, Y and Z - i.e we are assuming 3D data. Note 2: There is no explicit limit on the number of variables Note 3: Units are optional and can be omitted or specified as []

From what I know, in the CFD Post when creating a graph there is the possibility of inserting a "series", ie a file for example of excel with the results in order to compare with the results obtained.
