I have some problems with the integration of OPENFOAM and Tecplot that I would like to discuss in the forum to understand if I am doing something wrong or if there are some Tecplot limitations.

I am running, in openfoam, a 2D differential heated enclosure. When I upload the data to tecplot through the native application (NO foamToTecplot) I noticed a strange behaviour

major issues:

    If I try to plot a vertical slice in the fake 3D domain, the slice is at the wrong temperature (166K while hot and cold wall are at 303 and 343 K). The contour plots on the external surfaces are instead ok

    Wall-heat-flux evaluated for the hot and cold wall patches, when imported in Tecplot, are actually zero on the patches but they have a defined value in the domain

While, even if annoying I can understand the second point the first one is quite obscure to me!

Any help on the above issues is more than welcome
