Hi all,

I'd like to plot a streamline on a user surface in CFX V11.0, but it turns out to be an error:" Geometry with emptyname does not have external interpolant", whlist a vector plot is ok.

Is that possible? Thanks for any suggestions.

Joe

Hi,

Yes, it is possible to get streamlines on any surface including user surface , all u have to select is Surface streamline option in the Type menu


I hope this helps

Best Of luck

Hi Pratik,

Thanks very much.

I've tried Surface streamline as well, but it doesn't work. Nothing happened after I click "apply". I've also tried arbitrary user surface in other "res" files and got the same problem. Could this be a function not developed by CFX?

Cheers,
Joe
