Hi all

I applied cylindrical velocity components at inlet of a pipe as inlet boundary condition as below:

Axial Component: 0.175*(1-(r/R)^2)
Radial Component: 0
Theta Component: 0.02*r

I want to plot Radial Velocity and Tangential Velocity along the pipe but I do not know how? I just can plot the Cartesian component of velocity (u,v,w) in CFD Post. Does anyone know how I can plot Radial Velocity and Tangential Velocity in CFD Post?

Best regards,
AshtonJ

In cfx post go to turbo mode then define your rotation axis next click calculate velocity components.now you can plot the variables you need.

Dear bharath

I did a FSI(Fluid Solid Interaction) modelling in a pipe. In CFD post when I wanted to plot axial, radial and circumferential velocity components, I got this error:

"No data exists for variable "Velocity Axial" specified in object series 1.”

However, I went to Turbo mode, defined my rotation axis and clicked calculate velocity components.

Does anybody know how to fix this problem?

Thanks
Regards,
AshtonJ
