Default Numbering and Tracing Streamlines in Fluent

Hello Everyone,

A simple steady-state pipe flow has been simulated with a pressure inlet and pressure outlet, with some known fluid properties and symmetric feature (only modeled half of the pipe). The flow is found to be agreeing with the typical flow behavior (velocity, pressure values agree with theoretical results).

We need to generate streamlines, starting at center of each element on the inlet. Therefore, if we have n elements on the inlet, n number of streamlines need to be generated. Then, we need to trace each streamline separately and export the relevant information (i.e. velocity magnitude, etc.) out for further analysis in MATLAB.

We already created the streamline and exported that in a csv format. But, when we open it in excel, it is almost impossible for us to see which points (nodes) are related to the same streamline. We need to be able to distinguish the streamlines from each other.

Please help !!!!!!!
