Default monitoring spacial variation of a quantity
Posts: n/a
Dear All,

I am doing URANS simulation and i want to monitor the spacial variation of say the velocity...i want to look at how the velocity is changing at every time step in the spacial direction...not sure how i can do this or whether it can be done. I can plot separate velocity profile for a particular time step but i am not sure whether i can get it to work such that i will see how the velocity changes spacially at every time step?

Any help will be highly appreciated.

You may do any of the following:

1. Save intermediate *.dat file every time step to be later on post-processed.

2. Use animation to display the solution every time-step on the fly.

Hopefully, this helps.
