CFX post
I want to simulate my whole domain temprature contour in CFX but I don't know how does it?!
my domain id a tube (L=2000mm and D=4mm).
And I want to compromise my velocity profile by an article. How I can get data profile result fro CFX post?

I am sorry, I do not understand your question.

Do you want to draw a temperature contour plot in CFD-Post? This is easy, the tutorials show how this is done.

Do you want the velocity profile? Then draw a line object and use the line object to plot vectors or draw a chart or even export the data so you can take it into Excel, matlab or whatever you like.

If your domain is 2000x4 then producing good plots will be tricky. You will have to think what is the best way to present your data - a series of plots each showing a section, or compress the length axis or just show it as is. Or maybe intersting things only happen in one part and the rest can be ignored - it is up to you.

I have a temprature curve (getting from CFX post) and now I want to compare it by temprature curve from my article refrence in one plot. I don't know how I can get output result for temprature curve from CFX post and going to excel for processing? Can I do my comparison in Cfx post( infact have two curve in one plot: one from CFX post and other from another refrence,I have data from article curve)? How?
about last question; How I can compress my whole lenght axis in CFX post?

May you introduce me a complele tutorial for CFX post?

You can export data from CFD-Post using the export function. Then you can draw the graphs in excel or whatever graphing software you want.

All of the CFX tutorials include a section on post-processing to get different types of results. Have a look through them.
