Monitor point
 
Hi,

I want to export Static pressure from an unsteady calculation at different points using the monitor panel. I defined my points, and set static pressure in the surface monitor. But I don't know what to specify in the "report type"? There is several option for a surface, but what happen for a point? I used "sum", "Integral"...for 3 differents point and obtained exactly the same results for all the points.... Any idee? thanks in advance.

You should create a surface point and select a vertex average report type.

It is exactly what I've done, but results are strange...close data whatever the point location, which is not the case.

Thanks anyway

You can check whether the points are located at the right place using display-contours(unfilled)-surfaces(surface points)

Use the area weighted average.
