You can specify a plane over your outlet and draw the velocity over this plane.

Yes,i know that . I insert a turbosurface and specify the variable. But ,the plane is cylindrical. What i want is a flat plane. So,my problem is to transform the cylindrical into a flat plan. Do you really understand what i want to do?
Please!!!!!!!

No, I do not understand what you want to do.

Do you want to put a flat plane through your domain, or do you want to take the existing cylindrical section and map it to a flat surface? Or something else?

I want to take the existing cylindrical section and map it to a flat surface.
I will show you some pictures which is the experimental result.
I want to compare my numerical result to it .

I cannot think of a way of doing this all in CFD-Post. I would export the data from your cylindrical surface and plot it using an external package, like matlab, excel (if you must), python, tecplot or whatever you wish.

Thank you for your advice.
I am going to use tecplot.
