 April 18, 2006, 17:16 length integration #1 James Guest   Posts: n/a Hello, all I am using the function calculator(cfx-post) to calculate the length integral of a variable on a streamline. However I can't find the mathematical description of this function in help document. The question I would ask here is: if I have N lines in a streamline plot, will the LengthInt function give an average length integration value or a tatal integration value for all N lines? Similarly, how does the lengthint work on a particle tracking plot? Regards! James

If you have several streamlines it will integrate over all of them. If you want the integral over only a single streamline then create a streamline object with only a single streamline by giving it a single point as a start object for instance. Glenn Horrocks

So I guess I need to take N streamlines, calculate the total integral, and then dividing N to get the average integral. Thanks! James
