 December 11, 2006, 10:00 Interpolation schemes!! #1 swetha Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I am working on a 3D-cylinder unstructured grid and I need to plot U-mean and V-mean profiles in the wake region of the cylinder at different points, ie x=(1.06) and y varies along that line. Since its a unstructured grid and a 3D i should first be able to interpolate in the xy plane and avg them over the z-plane that is in space. Can anyone help me with this?? Thanks swetha

For finite volume method you need not transform cartesian to into natural coordinate system
