Default [CFX-Post] Force over time
Posts: n/a
Hi folks,

I'm novice with CFX and I'm trying to produce a chart (or table) in CFX-Post which renders the force acting on a surface over time. However, It seems that CFX-Post is only able to compute such quantity using the "Function calculator" for each time snapshot. I already tried to configure a chart, but I can't select the desired surface on the location combo box. Any ideas?!

Thanks in advance.

Yes, I tried a Force x Time chart but CFX-Pro don't let me choose where (surface region) the Force should be integrated on. Actually, this is my main problem?

Create an expression in post that is the force integration over the surface (for instance: areaInt(Pressure)@Body or whatever force integration you need) and then plot a time chart of that expression.
