Monitor point

I want to export Static pressure from an unsteady calculation at different points using the monitor panel. I defined my points, and set static pressure in the surface monitor. But I don't know what to specify in the "report type"? There is several option for a surface, but what happen for a point? I used "sum", "Integral"...for 3 differents point and obtained exactly the same results for all the points.... Any idee? thanks in advance.

Re: Monitor point
You should create a surface point and select a vertex average report type.

Re: Monitor point
It is exactly what I've done, but results are strange...close data whatever the point location, which is not the case.

Thanks anyway

Re: Monitor point
You can check whether the points are located at the right place using display-contours(unfilled)-surfaces(surface points)

Re: Monitor point
Use the area weighted average.
