How to extract data from a completed transient simulation without re-running the case

I am using ANSYS Fluent to simulate a transient flow field. The case has been run for a physical time of 150 s, with the data saved every 0.5 s (physical time). Thus, I have 300 .dat file after the simulation.


During post-processing (using CFD-Post, EnSight), I want to extract the time history of temperature and velocity for some sample points. Could I achieve this goal without re-running the simulation for another 150 s physical time, which is painfully long?


To clariy, I did monitor one point and saved its time history during the Fluent solving process. But that’s not enough. Now I want to extract more information from this completed transient simulation.

Yes if the information required depends on variables available in the export should be possible. In post check transient chart and export what you want.
