Fluent Postprocessing - NEU!
Good evening, dear people,

I have solved with FLUENT a very long 3d pipe -for some reason- of 10^6 elements.
I would like to export a "xy data" file with 1 column for dyn-pressures and 1 for velocities, in order to further integrate the corresponding values on several cross-sections.

Could anybody introduce me a way to avoid a full-domain data file creation of such a hugh size? More specifically, could FLUENT provide me "jumping" on individual cross-sections of my interest and export only those values in a file?

Thank you in advance!

For the "jumping" issue, you can create surfaces on cross sections of interest using Define>Surface (I believe). It is very straightforward to define a plane using three points. Once the surfaces are defined and named, you can simply select them for the xy plotting or use them for any other reports or monitors.

Thanks you, Mr. Zachariah!
