Dear All,

When I finished the simulation, I would like to see the contour for zero x-direction velocity in the three computational domain. However, I found that in paraview the contour is only for scalars, for example, p, T, or density. I would like to plot the x-component of velocity U. How can I do it?

Hi hz283,

You can use the filter "Calculator" to extract components of vectors and have them as normal scalar fields.

Best regards,
