Hello CFX Users,

I have an interest problem. For example there is an simple tube with "no slip" walls. Based on the contour plot value of the velocity is zero at the walls. If the velocity is calculated by the "probe variable" (in one point) than it is not zero. (in my case about 35-40 m/s)
How is it possible?

Look in the doc for the difference between conservative and hybrid values. The probe is returning the conservative value, the plot is showing the hybrid value.
