 February 5, 2011, 19:10 Pressure distribution over a curve in CFX-Post #1 Senior Member   Ugly Kid Joe Join Date: Aug 2010 Posts: 193 Rep Power: 7 I am simulating a flow over a cylinder. I need to create a chart to find out the pressure distribution along the surface of the cylinder. The problem is how do I have an angle from 0 to 360 degrees on the x-axis ???? I need to know what I should be taking in my x-axis ???

Then you can use the value of this variable on the surface as the X axis for your chart.
