Paraview plot time average
 
Hi,

I want to plot time velocity averages over a line using paraview but I can't figure out how. I can plot at one specific time but how can I get the time average of that?

Thanks,

Tony

Time average
 
Hi,

I found a way to do this. One should use the filter "temporal statistics" under "Temporal". This will calculate the average of all the time steps. If you want a specific range of times just open the VTK files of the corresponding time steps and use the filter. The variable with the computed average will appear in the dropbox where u can select the variable you want to visualize. If you then want to plot over a line, use that filter and that should do it.

Good luck,

Tony
