ttcs6 is on a distinguished road
I'm sorry if this doesn't make much sense but I'm new to CFD and STAR CCM+ and terminology isn't my forte!

I'm trying to find the circulation around a plane. I've created the plane of interest by using the function 'contrained plane' however when it comes to calculating circulation I'm stuck.

As far as I understand, circulation is the integral of vorticity around the area of the plane of interest. I've thought about creating a new field function but don't know where to proceed from here.

Any help would be much appreciated!!!
