Default Coordinate conversion

Hi I got a problem about coordinate system. Actually, CFX is calculating in cartesian system. Do I have to difine r, theta in CEL? I tried it. But it makes odd plots. What would be the proper CEL function to convert to cylindrical system.

You can do this in post, with the Turbo tab. With this tab you can define a rotational axis and calculate the cylindrical velocity components (which then appear as variables).

I also defined some variables to calculate statistical values. Can I convert those variables to cylindrical coordinate in turbo tab?
