Plotting injections and fluid
I'm working on a 2-D project using FLUENT. I have 2 inlets and multiple outlets. I injected particles at different diameters to see how they flow with the fluid. I can plot the stream function for the fluid and for the injections. Is it possible to plot both of them both on the same plot?

I need to do this because I am trying to see what size particles will follow the streamlines of the fluid(air) and what size particles will fall away from the flow.

Hey bud,

As far as I know u can't do it using FLUENT but if you've got access to CFD-post, it can do it for u easily!

I think you can do it with Tecplot360.

I like to process the data from fluent with Matlab for data processing is convenient, and I remenber the streamlines data can be saved as tecplot data(file-export-tecplot) directly,then you can read the saved data to Matlab.

Ok thanks everyone for your advice.

Dear S1m0n1
Could you solve your problem regarding the plotting of stream function for both fluid and particle? if it is so, then please help me in this regard.
