hi all,

does anyone know if I can non-dimensionalize the legend in FLUENT with a constant number that I define...i.e. I would like the legend that indicates what each contour color is to be unitless. do i need to export in something like tecplot to do this? or can fluent handle it?

Thanks

quickest would be just to use the calculator and create a new variable.
you using Ansys CFD to do the post processing?

figured out a better way, so dont bother replying...

for anyone that is interested, or didnt know how to do this, like myself, go to define-->custom field functions, and then choose the field variable to non-dimensionalize from the drop down menu, put it in the calculator and divide by whatever you want, and then re-define that variable using some other name that you specify.

Then display contours of that new variable, which will be the original variable in non-dimensional form.
