I have a file .dat with 3 columns of numbers, thickness as function of two other indipendent variables. I have loaded the data file as a General text and I have plotted the 3D view but now I need to view the 2D contour plot and I don't understand how do that. Everything I have tried give to me the same results ... a white graphic with only the right axes .. thanks for your help

 February 6, 2013, 11:33 help contour 2d -- "connect" the data #2 Senior Member   Scott Rumage Join Date: May 2009 Location: Seattle, WA Posts: 118 Rep Power: 8 Tecplot is unable to create a contour plot from data that is "unconnected" (which is what your data are). One can connect data in Tecplot a variety of ways. Once Tecplot understands the connectivity of the data, then it will be able to produce the contour. Option 1. -- If the data are 2D one can triangulate via a method described in this tutorial video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FMTLQ-ozKA Option 2. -- If the data are on a regular XY grid, one can create a grid in Tecplot Data>>Create Zone>>Rectangular and then interpolate the data onto the newly created grid Data>>Interpolate Cheers, Scott A CFD free user likes this.

 June 21, 2013, 08:00 #4 New Member   Mihael Plut Join Date: Jun 2013 Posts: 3 Rep Power: 4 Hello, my problem is as follows: i have data velocity magnitudes in an excel table. Each cell has a coordinate (x,,y) which is associated with the location in space where the velocity was measured. v=f(x,y). How do I import the data correctly? Until now i had no success. I have imported the data from excel (table size 21*31) gotten 21 variables in tecplot. Crated rectangular zone and interpolated. Unfortunately i can only plot contour where my x and y axes are one of those 21 velocities columns and can choose a third one to do the colouring with. thank you very much.
