 November 18, 2011, 23:55 Translate the pressure field on a cylinder side to a plane #1 New Member   Darren Zhang Join Date: Nov 2011 Location: China Posts: 20 Rep Power: 8 The Geometry of the model is similar with a cylinder,and I get the pressure field on the side surface of the cylinder .For easier to analyse the 360 degree pressure field on the side ,how to make the pressure field be visual on a plane surface in CFX,or other Code(such as Tecplot)? Thank you for your answer in advance!

But you can do most of the hard work by defining a variable theta which is the angle around the body, and exporting theta, z and you variable to a file. You can then load it in anything (matlab, excel if you must or any other plotting program) and plot it as a 2D plot of theta versus z.

The down side is that you have to find equivalents for the turbo closed region (inlet, outlet, hub, shroud). The up side is that if you don't have such regions you can provide Post with lines that represents them. These lines can be generated using polylines, for example. If anyone claims this is not straightforward, I would totally agree. But if you don't have any other tool, than at least you have a way of plotting your data the way you want. Cheers

? I explained how you can export the data in a format from CFD-Post which should be readable in any 2D plotting program. While actually doing the plot is not possible in CFD-Post you can get it to do most of the hard work. It should be reasonably straight forward.
