Default streamlines / pathlines in 3D model
Posts: n/a
Fluent has got facility to draw streamlines / oil flow -pathlines on pre-set zones which are pre-specified and imported from Gambit.

Is there a way to plot similar oil flow path lines on surfaces created internally in Fluent during post-processing.

I'm trying to visualize the flow between two parallel plates. The flow skinning top plate is at different angle compared to the flow skinning bottom surface. I could plot the oil flow path lines on both the endwalls. But I want to get the streamlines at mid-height. I'm looking at some literature doing that way.

can anybody help me in this regards.

your help is highly appreciated

thanks in advance Babu
