cfx new user problem
hi everyone, i am a very new user of cfx. i would like to ask a few questions since no one tecah me this software.

i am doing a water flow analysis of an enclosure(rectangular shape) to see if water dropping vertically from the top of the enclosure can enter the enclosure. i am setting the value in global initialisation, i would like to know what should i input for the value in the cartesian velocity components u, v and w(my analysis is that water is dropping from a drip box from the top of the enclosure with velocity 0.025mms^-1)? i have tried to set some different value for them, but i can't realised what's the difference in the cfx-post.

also, in the cfx-post, i creat streamline to see the effect of water to the enclosure and i see some blue lines(very low velocity) inside the enclosure. i would like to ask how can i cut some cross sectional area(to see the effect of water to the enclosure) for the ease of showing the results for presentation?

Thank you everyone!!!

Create some planes across your domain of interest and then point the contour plot to these planes if you like.
