plot pressure distribution on a section of 3D wing
 
Dear FLUENT user;

I have done a 3D simulation of the flow field around a simple rectangular wing with parallel version of FLUENT6.3. I want to plot the pressure distribution on several sections of the wing, but in FLUENT I only have the wing surface and only can have a contour plot. How can I define or have the curve of each section to plot the pressure distribution on it. At the serial version of FLUENT, I export the pressure distribution on the wing surface as an ASCII file. Then I arrange the coordinates at Microsoft EXCEL (for example to find the pressure at each X and Y coordinates at a constant Z (span direction)) and plot at that software. But at parallel version, unfortunately FLUENT can not export as an ASCII file!!!

It would be very funny if I can not have the pressure distribution on each wing section after my twenty 3D simulations.

So, I really need your valuable guidelines!

Sincerely yours, Roozbeh

in the menu surface, iso-surface, click on the wing in the "from surface" window, choose grid in the "surface of constant and then on x or y or z coordinate. Put the value of coordinate and then click on create.Now you have your surface. Hi

Dear Stefano;

Thank you so much. Your guideline is so much valuable for me and some of my friends who have the same problem.

best wishes, Roozbeh

Dear Roozbeh,

I am working on the same kind of project.Did your problem statement was also taking in account for rotation of blade?if yes what was the boundary conditions ?
