xTamx420 is on a distinguished road
Is it possible to view flow separation in FLUENT? I tried the velocity vector field and tried looking for where the fluid velocity changed direction but it didnt. I suppose its either because the flow didnt separate or because I am using the wrong tool to view it.

I used a k-omega model on a NACA 0012 with a reynolds number of 3000000 at an angle of attack of 6 degrees.
