I am solving mixing tank problem with baffels. I need to estimate the shear stress at walls and in a plane inside the computational domain. How can I get Tau_r_Theta for example? I checked the fluent manual and it says that you can get T_xx, T_yy, etc....
Your help is appreciated

You can directly plot wall fluxes on wall using >display.

If you want to plot the wall shear stress on wall, you need to set up the monitor at start.

And for plane inside domain. while creating geometry you need to creat that plane, on which you can plot or display stress while postprocessing.
