 February 8, 2011, 17:22 How to measure angle of flow #1 New Member   anonymous Join Date: Jan 2011 Posts: 3 Rep Power: 7 Hi, I have a long vertical pipe in which the flow is almost straight and vertical. Now I want to find out the angle of flow with respect to the Y-axis (just to make sure that the angle wrt Y-axis is less than 15 deg). How can I do that, generally? I had the problem solved in Fluent. I am not worrying about doing it in Fluent right now. I want atleast the formula. Please help. Thanks.
