 October 6, 2007, 03:16 Mach Contour on water vapor compressible flow #1 Tony Guest   Posts: n/a I'm a new FLUENT user. Right now I'm running simulation on the steam ejector. In material panel, I choosed water vapor with ideal gas on the density. In post processing, I want to see the mach number contour, but I can't find mach number in the contour of velocity field. What should I do? Please, is there anyone can help me with this problem? I'd really appreciate your help. Thanks in advanced..

Yes, you're absolutely right about Mach number definition, but how can I display Mach number contour in Fluent? Is it possible to display it in Fluent? Why isn't there Mach number in velocity contour field even though I've changed the density to Ideal gas? I am so sorry if my questions are so basic. best regards..

Compressible air was used as material but I couldn't find mach contour in Fluent post process but velocity magnitude. Somebody help us. please
