ParaView or Sample Utility
1 Attachment(s)
Dear All,

I have the following "issue" - when comparing results for TauXY (shear stress components) produced with the ParaView and Sample utility I found out that there is a difference! The grid is uniform, I am "sampling" with the following settings in SampleDict:
  • interpolationScheme cellPointFace;
  • setFormat raw;
The results (output from ParaView and Sample utility) are attached! Can someone please tell me the reason for the difference and what post-processing tool is more reliable (trustworthy)!

Last but not least, the output for the pressure is identical for both, ParaView and Sample utility!

Thanks in advance,
