FIDAP/ FIPOST - velocity vector plot question ????
 
Hi, everybody!

when plotting velocity vectors in a region with very fine mesh - the huge amount of arrows overlap each other, which makes the presentation senseless. Does anybody know an option to reduce the number of velocity vectors shown by FIPOST Vector(Velocity) ??

Thanks!

PS. My idea at the moment is - to create a more coarse mesh and extrapolate the results. But it looks not elegant...

well, you can use the "scale factor" under command " vector", the default value is 50, but you can change it to a smaller one.

do I answer your question?

otherwise, ask you FIDAP support engineer.
