Default Ensight Particle Trace Help
Posts: n/a
I'm using the particle trace tool in Ensight. My geometry is rotationally periodic, and some of my particle traces pass from one passage to the next. Right now the path lines stop when they get to the periodic BC. Is it possible to get Ensight to continue drawing the pathline into the next passage?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks, Jason

To show rotational flow, if you do not have rot velocity, you have to transfer your velocity to rotational domain.

I understood that your streamline is cutting at the interface. You can use your interface as source area of streamlines(+/- side) It can solve your problem.
