I use tecplot 360 (or rather the OEM version tecplot SV from Synopsys) to visualize the results of some device simulations of photodiodes. The structure is in 3D and I would like to extract along Z (the depth of the photodiode) the maximum electrostatic potential. Then I want to project in an X-Y plane this maximum electrostatic potential.

How can I do that? I couldn't find a way to extract the maximum of parameter along a direction either in the GUI or with the scipting language..

Thank you all for your help

What you are seeking to do may be explained in this tutorial found on Tecplot's web site: http://download.tecplot.com/360/tuto...low/index.html and go to "Extracting a Slice Plane and Plotting a Variable".

Regards,
Scott

I watched the tutorial and this is not the same thing as what I try to do. For an example of the final result I would like to reach, you can look at the second page of this paper: http://www.imagesensors.org/Past%20W...%20et%20al.pdf. It is here a 2D projection of the maximum electrostatic potential in the structure. This is not the same a doing a simple slice at a given Z coordinate because the maximum electrostatic potential for a given (X,Y) may be at various depth Z.

I know this is not CFD but since you all use similar softwares, I guess some people have already done this kind of things, which can be applied to other parameters.

Dear Lysandre
Have you solved your problem?
It's interesting and I want to do a similar operation using tecplot.
many effort have been paid on this problem, but the problem can't be fixed.
Any hints or suggestion will be highly appreciated.
Kindly Regards
oliver
