 June 6, 2013, 06:51 distance between two vortex #1 New Member   saeed Join Date: Apr 2013 Posts: 4 Rep Power: 6 Hi all I am attempting to calculate distance between two vortxes behind a submarine by using ansys cfx. This distance is calculated by vorticity contour (contour of velocity curl in cfx post). Distance between stream lines is also calculated. Why this two distance is different and non equal? Cheers, Saeed

I think that this distance can obtain from vorticity contour or 2D streamline in cfx post that this two value (value from vorticity contour and value from 2D stremline on plane perpendicular to submarine) must be equal. but result from vorticity contour is not equal to 2D streamline. why?

But it seems pretty obvious that the vorticity approach and the streamline approach are defining the distance differently and therefore return different values. Why do you expect them to be the same?
