How to get a plot of fluctuating velocity component{u'(t)} in a turbulent flow
How can we plot fluctuating component of velocity {u'(t)} in a turbulent flow in a channel with respect to time at a point.
Regards TQIM 
You can create a probe under derived parts and monitor the velocity, or define a field function equal to the velocity minus the average velocity, and then monitor that, but you need to have a value for the average velocity, and that means you should have run the simulation for a long enough time that you have a statistically converged value for the mean velocity. Are you using LES, DES, or DNS?

Hi, Can I ask a similar question please: I am using LES to perform simulation around a cylinder. To compare the results from LES to a time averaged simulation result (like RANS), I would like to plot a scalar of the mean pressure from the LES transient results.
So, I will need to define a filed function, which means, the time average pressure of each point for a certain time. How to define that field function? Please help and thank you! Aqua Quote:

I guess Monitors > <RightClick> > Field Mean/Variance Monitor might help  depends on value you are trying to estimate; where Field Function argument of Monitor should be Report in specfifc volume of interest.

AHHH thanks!!!:D 
so this does a field function, or average parameter. how would one go about plotting a average velocity contour map, ie create scalar scene velocity across flow regime along plane C/S. and it varies with each time step... (duh), but then take all of those and create average over entire simulation
