 March 29, 2011, 16:09 Contour maps of integrated values #1 Senior Member   jeff osborne Join Date: Mar 2010 Posts: 108 Rep Power: 9 Sponsored Links Hello all, I need to create a contour plot in paraview of a nondimensional temperature field in a channel with a fixedgradient boundary condition. The way I'm nondimensionalizing it is as follows: phi = (T - Tw) / ( (Tb - Tw) Where T = local temperature Tw = Temperature at the wall. This can be any temperature value at any point on the wall actually, just so long as it is consistent Tb = Some bulk temperature which is calculated as follows: Tb = integral (u T dA_inlet) / U Ainlet where: u = local x-velocity dA_inlet = over the inlet area U = bulk velocity = 1 Ainlet = inlet area = 8 So, somehow I need paraview to calculate these at each time step for me and then I can make a contour plot of it and also an animation. The issue is with trying to calculate Tb for each time step because it isn't constant, it changes over time. I can do it for one time step by using the integrator filter in paraview, but I would like a way for paraview to do it for all time steps that way i can just be make a contour map of phi(t) (read, phi as a function of t). Anyone know how I can go about doing this? Thanks jeff
