Default XY Plotting with ANGLE - Possible ??
Posts: n/a
Hello ! I'm working on a supersonic body, with shock waves.

I've already plotted the pression (overpressure and depression) folowing the X axis, using fluent tutorial.

But I would like to measure the pressure perpendicular to the shock wave (I already know the angle of the shock wave).

Doea anybody knows how to do it ?? ( )

You can create a line (Surface->Line) and use two points that could represent the line. The points you enter are the end points of the line, so you have to make sure that you're putting a point on both sides of the shock, and then you can do an xy plot, and use Curve Length instead of direction vector as your X Axis function (or you could put in a vector that points from your start point to your end point).

Hope this helps, and good luck, Jason
