Could someone let me know how to create iso-surface vorticity contours.

Fluent data file doesnt have the vorticity magnitude parameter, I wanna get the vorticity contours on wing.

I appreciate your help. Thanks a ton.

you'll probably have to crunch that out yourself. You can export the velocity/streamfunction data from that particular plane, and then you'll have to write a simple program (or use excel etc) to calculate the vorticity.
