hrvig is on a distinguished road

I've been modelling the motion of a flat plat in free fall. I am to investigate how the boundary layer deforms throughout the fall. Does anyone know how to do such a thing?

Using the plot over line command lets me do this manually, which will be very time consuming. I have a text file containing the exact trajectory path if that can help.

Hope anyone out there has had the same problem

Best regards,

Update: Found out a small Python script allows me to do exactly this.
