Hi guys,

Im trying to deal with a streamlines picture in a wind turbine model. Ive seen this type of picture in a several articles but I cant get it. Someone knows about this topic in Fluent?

Thank you very much!

They are wall shear streamlines, but I don't know if you can gaet it in FLUENT or not. But in CFDPost you can do it.

yes, but in the place where it says 3D streamline, click on it and choose surface streamlines. Then choose streamlines of wall shear, and choose black color for them. You may also choose equally spaced and the number of seed points. Also put forward and backward for the diraction of integration. I hope this helps you. Regards Gonzalo

Hi Lino,

I think you can change the visualization options on CFD-Post software. Streamlines tool and then the third tab.

In my version only appear in streamline type: line; ribbon and tube

But yes if i change the symbol type turns to be possible perform a figure like that.
Thanks for the help
