After iterating , i get temperature contours discreet. Can i know what could be the problem?

Re: Contours
can you expedite what is actually contours showing?

No, I cant

Re: Contours
May be I can suggest you something if you could tell me what are you doing?Are you able to iterate successfully?is your solution converged?is your mass is conserved?

what i understand is, you ahve successfully iterated, and you get this as a error when you try to display contours of temperature or velocity.

Do you mean to display it as a filled temperature option?

Re: Contours
I am using fluent to model Inductively coupled plasma. It was sucessfully iterated and converged. Only Temp and velocity contours (filled) showd discete contours. Can i know the reason.

I dont have background of Fliud Dynamics.

Re: Contours
If the problem is getting the discrete values at each cells instead of a continuously varying contour across cells, you may not have turned on the nodal values in the display contours option.

Re: Contours
Increase the number of contour ranges from 20 to 100. That'll smooth out the plot. Also make sure nodal values is selected.

Good luck, Jason

Re: Contours
I have tried clicking node values and ranges also but the problem still exits.(Coutour shows some lines and some dots)

Re: Contours
can you send me the case and dat files so i check what is the problem

my email is

Re: Contours
Have you turned on "filled"?
