Plotting velocity and direction contours
Hi all,

I've collected data at 54 points in a meandering channel flume, and have the overall velocities in all 3 axes, as well as the roll, pitch and heading angle of the resultant velocity flow. I would like to plot this for all the points that I collected data for in the channel width.

How could I go about doing this? I've tried to use a 3D modelling software but it seems to be extremely tedious. Is there a software available where I can transfer my angles and velocities to obtain an overall 3D vector plot?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried Paraview?

No I haven't. I'm downloading it now, so will give it a go.

Thanks very much.
