Hello:
I'm doing simulations with OF of a 3D wing and comparing the results of force coefficients an pressure coefficients distributions on the surface of the wing. To do the last thing I'm using the sample comand of OF and postprocessing the data with a spreadsheet, but the problem with that is I change the mesh the template done for that doesn't serve anymore. So, the question is: is there any way I can get the pressure distribution in the resulting curve to intercept a plane with the wing at different stations of the same, as I can do it with CFD Post of ANSYS? Thanks in advance.
Gonzalo

PD: Sorry for my bad English

Hi Gonzalo,
Well if you have the Cp as variable in your solution file. You can just do several spanwise slices/cuts in Paraview and do xy plot of these curves.

Hope this helps.

Well, I can do it with the filter PlotOnIntersectionCurves, with the patch "wing" highlighted only in the tree browser of paraview. Then with the chart done, I export the data generated with the function "save data" (file=>save data). This produces a file with the extension CSV that you can open with a spreadsheet.
