 April 18, 2008, 05:12 plot pressure distribution on a section of 3D wing #1 ROOZBEH Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links Dear FLUENT user; I have done a 3D simulation of the flow field around a simple rectangular wing with parallel version of FLUENT6.3. I want to plot the pressure distribution on several sections of the wing, but in FLUENT I only have the wing surface and only can have a contour plot. How can I define or have the curve of each section to plot the pressure distribution on it. At the serial version of FLUENT, I export the pressure distribution on the wing surface as an ASCII file. Then I arrange the coordinates at Microsoft EXCEL (for example to find the pressure at each X and Y coordinates at a constant Z (span direction)) and plot at that software. But at parallel version, unfortunately FLUENT can not export as an ASCII file!!! It would be very funny if I can not have the pressure distribution on each wing section after my twenty 3D simulations. So, I really need your valuable guidelines! Sincerely yours, Roozbeh

Put the value of coordinate and then click on create.Now you have your surface. Hi studen, masood135, hicabiye and 1 others like this.
