Dear All,

I am looking to make contour video of molecular viscosity using CFD Post. My study is a transient fluid flow model within a rectangular tube. The computations have been complete and show to have laminar flow, no turbulence.

I tried this approach already: going to Run Calculation>Data File Quantities> Selecting Molecular Viscosity in the additional quantities. I then ran a couple of iterations so that I can refresh CFD post, and activate the desired properties.

From here, CFD Post loads a dynamic viscosity variable. I then tried to create the contour using "dynamic viscosity as the variable". Then I tried to input a min/max value, but my contour is not coming up with any image. The global and local value range is not picking up any values (unknown).

Do I need to run more iterations in order to have some values of viscosity in CFD post?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
