how to convert 3d results in 2D results
 
I am modeling a 2D problem. I set the mesh in Z direction just one layer and the two surfaces in Z plane as symmetric. After simulation, How can I convent the wall Shear stress in 3D case into real 2D case?

PS: How can I plot the relationship about wall shear stress on a curve VS Angle?

Hi,

Wall shear stress is meaningful in 2D and 3D as stress is force per unit area. There is no conversion necessary.
