[CFD-Post] Plot of pressure on an airfoil
 
Hi,

I have a simple problem with CFD-Post. I can't manage to make a simple plot of the pressure (or somethng else) on a surface. The idea is to get something like this : http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/wind/val...rflap01/cp.jpg

I made some charts with a line but it is not possible to use a plane as a data series for the chart. What's the trick for this ?

Thanks
Charles

My first guess is that you need a polyline through the intersection of a plane and a boundary.
This polyline can then be used as the input geometry for a 2D plot.

Thank you kind sir, it works !
