Hello, Is Fluent postprocess can do a 3D plot with data on a surface? Please have a look to the link to understand : http://www.coolingzone.com/Guest/New...pt_crossec.gif

I want to make a similar graph like in the link for heatsink baseplate temperature but I don't find how to do. I have tried with Tecplot too but no results. It seems to be 2D only.

Anyone could help me? Thx a lot

Hi

I don't think fluent it the program that suit your demands!

I sugguest that you try with matlab or another code designed for this type of tasks

Ok for Mathlab I could obtain it. But how to say Fluent to put in a file, in 3 columns, the node at (X,Y) with the value (temperature on a plate for example) to create the 3D plot in Mathlab??

Thx for your answer Alex

Hi

I think I miss-understood your question

I thought that you have a data file x,y,T and you want to plot T as a function of x, and y.

Now I realize that you generate your data in fluent. Therefore, you can export the temperature on the x, y coordinates to a file.

One way to do it is write a UDF to exporte the cell centroids and the temperature on them.

I don't remember if is possible to write a file with the information on a plane but I guess you also can do it.

Just check the User's manual for writing a file

Best regards

Hi

I forgot to tell you that you can write a profile of whatever variable over any surface

Best regards
