 July 6, 2001, 05:54 Postprocessing in 2D - specific area #1 Anthony Wachs Guest   Posts: n/a Hi everybody, I am currently trying to do a very simple thing but without any success, so I need your help. Let's consider a rectangular domain in 2D whose in xy plane. The length of the domain is 10 for instance (from 0 to 10 in the y-direction). My question is : how can you visualize your results on a fixed surface that corresponds to a part of your entire domain. For example, in the y direction from 2 to 8 ? I did not manage to create a surface or a zone which is a plane only for postprocessing. "Grid/separate" command could be used but actually I do not want to modify my grid, my interest is only postprocessing. Lines or points are easy to create, but not 2D area in 2D situations. Any advice would be useful !! Anthony

This tool is only available in 3d geometries. The problem still remains... Anthony

Then visualize the results using plot->xy plot : select the variable you want to view ( temp., pressure etc)and select the latest iso-value you created. You can see the graph showing variable varying along x or y depending on your surface(edge). This is available in Fluent 5.4.You can't see contours! Hope this meets your requirement. AJ
