Default Printing Values on a Specific Surface
Posts: n/a

I wish to obtain a list of pressure values on a particular wall surface. So far i am only able to obtain an XY plot of pressure against X coordinate, for the particular wall surface i am interested in. Instead of a graph i would like a print out of actual pressure values with their corresponding coordinates (ie the numeric data used to construct the XY plot).

The reason i wish to obtain these values is to ultimately determine the location of the centre of pressure. The object i am dealing with is essentially a stationary 2D square in a flow of air. Using the pressure values, i will use Excel to numerically integrate to ultimately determine the centre of pressure. Is there a simpler way to do this within FLUENT? For example using surface integrals etc.

All help appreciated, Matthew

Export and ascii file (File->Export, Choose ASCII under File Type, pick the surfaces under Surfaces, and pick Static Pressure and the coordinates under Functions to write).

Hope this helps, and good luck, Jason
