root mean square velocity

err : software is CFX 12.1

switch the post to the fluent branch...?

using both codes

You can do this in CFX using the transient statistics. Look on the output tab in CFXPre.

I need to plot rms value of the stream wise velocity fluctuation in my fluid domain(√(u' u' )) . since before running the transient case i specify velocity in the transinet statistics. so in my variables i have velocity correlation uu.Trnavg. is that sqrt(velocity correlation uu) representing (√(u' u' )) ? 
phase averaging data in CFX
another question:
when you specify velocity or other variables in the transinet statistics. in variables you have variable.Trnavg. which means data has been average over the whole simulated time. but if you want to do phase averaging or make data averaged over just few periods of time is that possible? 
If you want only partial time averaging or phase averaging you will have to export it and do it yourself.

what about "velocity correlation uu" is that representing (u' u' )? or is sqrt(velocity correlation uu. Trnavg) representing (√(u' u' ))? i want to plot the rms value of velocity fluctuation, is that the right way? 
If you are using a turbulence model then you can get u'u' from the turbulence intensity or the Reynolds Stresses (if a RSM). You can also do the Trnavg functions on these variables.
Be careful with averaging of these functions. Note that sqrt(transient average(u'u')) does NOT equal transient average(sqrt(u'u')).

thank you for your answer, i am a bit confused with that! in the Transient statistics there are different options: 1/ Arithmetic Average 2/ Root Mean Square and .... In my transient simulation i used the first option Arithmetic Average and then as a variable i selected velocity ... now as i mentioned previously i am interested in the rms axial velocity. so i am plotting the sqrt(velocity correlation uu. Trnavg) which i am not sure if it gives me rms axial velocity or not ! that is my first question !!! i think i had to go for the Root Mean Square in the Transient statistics option, am i right? if the transient calculation finished is that a way to get Root Mean Square values? Quote:

Read the documentation on the "velocity correlation uu" variable. It is not the axial velocity.

Any suggestions on how to do it?
Hello, i want also plot the rms values of the velocity and i am really confused reading this thread:
i don't find the options you named under transient simulation in Output tab by ANSYS CFXPre Is it possible to plot these fluctuations using SST model?  I am also doing the simulations with RSM models, how is that possiblr to plot?  I do not find the variables with Atrnave function! Could you please help me?
