 August 19, 2003, 14:00 Re: contour plot of stream function #3 liu Guest   Posts: n/a Thank you. But I still could not find "streamline" under "contours of veloctiy". I am using Fluent 6.0. There are velocity magnitude, X, Y, Z velocities, tangential velocity, vorticity, and so on. Can you tell me why.
