Coordinate conversion
Hi I got a problem about coordinate system. Actually, CFX is calculating in cartesian system. Do I have to difine r, theta in CEL? I tried it. But it makes odd plots. What would be the proper CEL function to convert to cylindrical system.

Re: Coordinate conversion
You can do this in post, with the Turbo tab. With this tab you can define a rotational axis and calculate the cylindrical velocity components (which then appear as variables).

Re: Coordinate conversion
I also defined some variables to calculate statistical values. Can I convert those variables to cylindrical coordinate in turbo tab?
