The problem is that my problem is 3D so I donot get any option for Stream function under Velocity Cant it happen that I make a plane and observe Stream Function contours on it? Please help me or if you have any suggestions?

 August 16, 2009, 12:49 draw velocity vector, streamline and stream function #6 New Member   Hussam Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 16 Rep Power: 10 Dear Sir My name is Hussam Ali Khalaf, postgraduate student in Iraq and Am currently working on “A Solution Algorithm for Transient Fluid Flow with Multiple Free Boundaries” I have results for velocities values (u and v) in directions x and y for undular bore evolution (please, note the file attachment), rectangular uniform mesh (2Dimension, (i,j)=(22,10)) consists of 20 cells in the horizontal direction (length=12 , ∆x=0.6) and 8 cells in the vertical direction (height=1.6, ∆y=0.2). Am supposed to draw velocity vector, streamline and stream function. I have a program TecPLOT, I have tried several times but I don’t fully understand how TecPLOT reads the results, would you please help me if you have any idea on how to go about it. Thank in advance Yours sincerely Hussam Ali Khalaf Iraq
