stream contours in 3D geometry
 
can any one tell how to get stream contours in 3D geometry??? thaanks

Re: stream contours in 3D geometry
 
I think you're referring to contours plot of the stream function.

If you want to plot them on a particular section of your 3D domain, just create the plane (Surface->Plane) on which that section lays and then plot contours choosing the plane you have created as plot surface and Stream Function in the drop down list.

I did creat plane alrready..because to view the contours of velocity, tmperature etc. i created two planes... but i found no stream function option in the drop down list..

thanks regards

Sorry, I didn't read carefully your post.

For a 3D case, stream function is not available under the velocity category in the drop down list.

Sorry again for the bad answer.

its ok...SO there is no alternative to get stream contours in a 3D geometry????

thanks

deifine the surface and then export the result (velocity components) to another CAD forvisualisation. I Dot it with Tecplot
