 May 18, 2006, 01:56 xy plot: multiple lines? #1 Ralf Schmidt Guest   Posts: n/a Hi! When I am plotting any value along the wall of my geometry (using xy plot, x-axis: direction vector), Fluent gives me TWO curves, one about 10 % higher than the other... For another mesh, there are even SIX curves!! What happend? And what curve is the right one? I had the same geometry (but another mesh) and everything was fine using the same settings. Any idea?

This may produce wierd plots. Maybe you would want to create a line or some other surface (depending on what your wall looks like) and plot those values instead. Hope this helps! /Henrik

And I do not think, thats the problem. There is no option for selecting "wall as the surface to use" in xy plot... Besides that, I want to plot y+ or y*, and thats only possible for a wall.. Any other idea? Ralf

I was thinking about the Surfaces-panel, where you choose your wall surface if you want to plot y+ or y* values in the Solution XY Plot-dialouge. Anyway, as you say, these values are only available for walls. What I was trying to say was that if you for example wish to plot y+ values for a cylindrical pipe along the main flow axis, and the flow is not symmetrical, then it is of course possible to have different y+ values at the wall in the plane perpendicular to the main flow axis. This will result in several points and/or lines being plotted. A way to get around this that perhaps would require quite some extra work is of course to write the data to a file and process and plot in some other, more convenient program. :P /Henrik
