I want to find the location of the source of the plume by using a mobile robot. I also want to know the time the robot will take to find the location. please suggest me how I can import CFD model of ANSYS into matlab?
how to import CFD model from ansys in matlab to trace the plume of CO2 with the help of robot?

As Peter mentioned in https://studentcommunity.ansys.com/thread/how-to-find-the-location-of-the-source-of-the-plume-with-the-help-of-a-robot-using-matlab/ this isn't the place to get help with Matlab.
In Fluent we can export data in a range of formats: what data do you want in Matlab?
I want to export fluent ASCII file into Matlab, just to trace the plume through Matlab programme.
Here are the steps I used to export the ASCII data from the Fluent model that computed the CO2 concentration.
In Fluent, File, Export, Solution Data... then I picked ASCII, picked the domain and selected Mass fraction of co2.
Note there is a choice of location between Node and Cell Center. I picked Cell Center.
After I clicked Write... a file was created on the disk.
You can import that into matlab using the Import Data button. I changed the range to ignore the cellnumber and set it to column vectors.
Plotting that data is difficult in matlab, but easy for me in JMP. So I opened the data in JMP and was able to make a contour plot.
Attached is the cell center exported data from the model attached to this post.
