CFX-5: Monitoring values
Hi all,
Is there a way to output a variable in a specified node or physical space along the solution in CFX-5? In CFX-4 is possible due the following features: "OUTPUT MONITOR POSITION" (physical coordinate) and "OUTPUT MONITOR POINT" (nodal coordinate). So, is there a similar procedure in CFX-5?

Re: CFX-5: Monitoring values

I was wondering the same thing. I have to create a point...effectively a line from the centre point to whereever, and then plot the value I want on an x-y plot. It will plot all the values from the centre point to the end of the line.

Monitoring points will be available in CFX-5.5 coming out this fall. There is no easy way to do this in 5.4.1.

Re: CFX-5: Monitoring values
Could you clarify for me a bit:

- Create a point where?

- Create a line where?

- What will plot values from the center to the end of the line?

I have a feeling you might have misunderstood the original question.
