Hi,
does anybody know how to compute the length of a streamline in paraview?I need to compute tortuosity.
Thank you in advance.

Greetings Alessandro and welcome to the forum!If you only have a single streamline and you want to calculate the total length, then:
  1. Apply the "Integrate Variables" filter.
  2. A spreadsheet should appear on the right of the screen.
  3. On that spreadsheet, change the option "Attribute" to "Cell Data".
  4. One of the columns should be named "Length".
Best regards,
Bruno

Thanks a bunch Bruno! Finally I've succeded to compute tortuosity strting directly from the velocity field, without the aid of paraview. Anyway it will be useful in future!
Best regards
Alessandro
