dshawul is on a distinguished road
Hi ,
Is there a visualization software that can interpolate values based on distance from surface. For example, if I want to get the wind speed in the x-direction at exactly 10m height from the ground (which has different elevations), how do I do that ?. I have the ground as a patch in STL format, so just shifting that up by 10m is all I need. Most can only do cutting planes and may be some simple curves. Paraview, Tecplot? If it is not possible to do, what is the best way to go about it ?
Thank you.
