Split surfaces in CFX-POST
Hello everyone,

is there a way, in CFX-POST to split a surface into two parts, for example above and below the intersection with a user-defined plane? Or, alternatively, calculate functions like areaAve only on part of a surface? Something like areaAve(Pressure)@Surface1 but only up to Z=20...

Thanks Francesco

Yes. Create a contour plot on the surface and specify an appropriate range or list of values and number of contours to get the divisions you want, then create a User Surface using the "from Contour" method. Basically, you can create a user surface for every contour level. These user surfaces can then be used as locators for other plots, expressions, etc.

Regards, Robin

Thank you SO much Robin! You can't imagine how much time this saves me... I thought it was not possible and was already thinking of terribly complicated ways to do it, for example exporting the surface coordinates to matlab and all sorts of complicated procedures.
