 October 28, 2011, 13:48 Fluent- how to plot axial velocity #1 New Member   ripong Join Date: Oct 2011 Posts: 6 Rep Power: 7 I have a geometry of bent cylinders. Do you know how to show contours (or any kinds of plot) of axial velocity? Here axial velocity means the velocity along the cylindrical axis, which is a curve made of straight lines and arcs.

The in the xy plot you can see your defined line under surfaces and you can plot your required velocity profile on this line. Is it helpful?

hi and thanks for your attention
but I did not mean that, I want to plot an axial velocity contour in different sections in the geometry which is non planar.
as you can see in this picture ,there are different sections which are not along an specific axis and I don't know how to plot an axial velocity contours.
axial velocity tab in fluent is not work here because this geometry is not planar and is not along x,y,z axis.
is there any idea?
thanks

Is it helpful? metmet likes this.

If so then taking diametrical length( in your fig. length from point 4 to the outlet of the pipe)define a plane for an axial length from inlet to outlet.By doing this on a wide plane you can get contour plot of the flow. you can try with this.
