 February 15, 2011, 21:52 Fluent Plots #1 Member   John Join Date: Jan 2011 Posts: 58 Rep Power: 6 I have a converged car solution in FLUENT and I need to have a cut in the car and plot (pressure) in y-axis showing values of static pressure in the car in a side view (half) and the car in x-axis. How can I do that in FLUENT?

offffff, try to read and do the "tutorial 24 - Postprocessing" in Fluent Tutorial Guide, it will help you to get an idea about how to do it

man I understand that my question is too easy to you but for me I am a beginner and doesn't look that easy for me.

Anyway I look at tutorial 24 (FLUENT) its for Turbo post-processing its not what I need I just need the steps to do my question if you know.

I have done your procedure but it seems that you didt understand me.
what i need is to take a cut from the car and display values of pressures instead of contour plots like XY plot with pressure.

I have a symmetry surface but i need the step or way to do it mate.

 February 21, 2011, 20:14 #8 New Member   belfair Join Date: Jan 2011 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 6 so you need to create line (or lines) for specific side position (surface> line) then go to XY plot to plot pressur vs (x or y) on the created line you can plot pressur on created surface too but you will have n plots (n = nodes)

However i tried it and i did had the results of the pressure distribution of the car using iso-surface but it doesnt recognize if upper stream or lower stream.
I think i have to use points or else to plot both upper and lower streams of the car in one XY plot.

ooh i think there is a misunderstanding when you said go to iso-surface did you mean in FLUENT solution or FLUENT results.
I would prefer using solutions

on the surface menu you could create line, rake, iso-surface to display or plot your results
on iso-surface you could create surfaces according to results values of any variable (such as max or min vorticity value or pressur or whatever)

euh ... i am confused ... but what s the diff between FLUENT solution and FLUENT results

Yes but if i have a car and i would like to chose the top part of the car only, which tool to chose?

thanks for the help i figured an easier way of doing it, i chosed points and then created them on the symmetry plane.
