Tecplot 360
Hi, everyone,

Who knows how to change axial value to relative value in the Tecplot, for example, current value/5?

Changing axial values in Tecplot 360
Hello Lig,

This can be accomplished in Tecplot 360 by creating a new variable via the data alter command, and then setting the new variable as a new axis.

Via the Tecplot menu , go to Data>>Alter>>Specify Equations

{new variable}=0
And then

{new variable}= [current value]/5

More details on how to do this can be found on , with a suggested search keyword of “alter”.

Information on the “Data>>Alter” command is also located in the user manual in Chapter 21 (page 299):

A more general description on shifting frames of references for analysis of heterogeneous data is described by Dr. Scott Imlay, Tecplot’s Director of Research, in this white paper: (note: this paper is not a Tecplot tutorial).

Thank you very much, Scott, I got it.
