Hi,

can somebody tell me how to plot velocity in
Paraview, I am using the 2.4 version and in the scalars there is no velocity,

I think the problem is I can't separate the three (x,y,z) velocity fields there....

thanks for your help,
Ali.

You can visualize U_x, U_y and U_z separately by

1) choosing "U" under "Display"->"Color"->"Color by",

2) clicking on "Edit Color Map",

3) switching between "Magnitude" (default) and "Component" under "Vector",

4) choosing the coordinate (X, Y, Z) you'll have a look on (if you choose "Component" before).

That's all.

Hi Kerstin

thanks for your reply, I did all those steps, yet
they don't show up on my scalars so Ican plot them, I just can plot pressure, K and epsilon

I use filters > extracts parts > Mesh > data analysis


any idea?


thanks!
