Hi there,

I am trying to plot Iso Vorticity Surfaces, for overset grids, using the grid files and the Q files for 2 bladed rotor. Which is better to be used, FAST or FIELDVIEW. or somebody know a better sorfware.

Any help will be appreciated !

Thankyou,

-Radhika

(1). FIELDVIEW is a commercial product, so, I think, you can contact the vendor and get the needed information and support. (2). FAST is from NASA, so I don't know whether you can get your needed support of not.

We use fieldview and make a lot of vorticity plots. Fieldview works great with vorticity (iso-surfaces, whatever you want) Don't know about FAST

Dear John

I admire the way you have to write two sentences and to say nothing.

(1). The fact is I have used both software. (2). If you are good, you can use FAST. (3). If you need help, then try the commercial one.

Hi Brat and others,

If you have worked in Fieldview can you please tell me how do I plot, Iso vorticity surfaces. Whenever I tried plotting I get some, box type very weired looking surfaces.

Thanks,

-Radhika

After you created the variable vorticity and you select it as the iso-function, it should be ok. You can have fieldview calculate the velocity gradients needed for the velocity or your own program. I don't know anything about your solution so I don't know what's wrong. We've had no problems yet with Fieldview.

Regards,
