Hello,
how can I get, in a well defined position along the surfaces of an airfoil, the boundary layer velocity profiles, i.e. the values (or the plot directly..) calculated in a direction perpendicular to the considered point tangent?
Of course I already have the flow field calculated with good resolution in the near wall region.
Thanks.

Do you mean extract the values from a result file? If so, why not by defining a plane at the target position?

Yes you are right, thanks. Actually I almost found the way to do it. Is it correct to use the "export" function?

You can plot a chart to show the profile, and also export a location, like a curve or plane, to show the values at nodes. :-)
