How can I output slices of the flowField via sampledPlanes
 
Hey guys,

here is my problem. I am using sampledPlanes to gather informtions of the calculated field. I can also write the mesh of these planes via "sampledPlanes().write(file_name)" after an update.

The question is now, how can I export for example the velocity distribution on this plane. I can use the vealues via "sP.sample(U.component(1))" for example to get the y-component. But I want to have the slice like it is in paraview.

I had a look to the sample utility but unfortunately I can not help myself.

Would be nice to get help.

Hi

as far as i know there is a function object to sample plane lines and probes during calculation. I'm not sure about the syntax, but maybe you can have a look at it.

The function object needs to be defined in the control dict.
