Hi

I'm currently post processing 3D case and data files in Tecplot. I am trying to get a vector plot of the Velocity magnitude on the cross section plane of the mesh. I have created a slice where I want the vector plot.

When I go to select the variable to plot, it doesnt give me the option to plot Velocity Magnitude, only X Vel, Y Vel or Z Vel.

Does anyone know if there is a way of fixing this?

Just found the answer to this on a different thread on the forum (thanks fremdar!!)

I thoguht i'd post it here anyway in case anyone is having a similar problem:

Export a CGNS file from Fluent (selecting velocity magnitude for me)

Open the CGNS file in Tecplot using the CGNS Loader in the Tecplot 'Import' menu

Hi,
It has simpler way! you can define new variables in Tecplot:
Data->alter->specify equation ....

Bests,
