Velocity vectors in different planes
 
Hi, Is there any way I can get the plot of velocity vectors in diffrent planes? The problem is this - I have a cylindrical tube and inside it is a solid geometry. I want to look at the velocity vectors inside the cylinder (if you look into the tube from the top). Also I want the velocity vectors of the axial view. Is this possible?

Thanks, Vidya

I'm not entirely sure if this is what you're looking for but if you go to Display->Vectors, then click on Vector Options... here you can turn off components you don't want (so if your axis is in the z-direction, you would turn off the Z-component), or you can use the In Plane option, which removes any component of the vector that is perpendicular to the plane you're plotting them on.

Hope this helps, and good luck, Jason
