What is the procedure to put pressure probes in the flow field and at the boundary in SU2? Thanks.

SU2 will output the pressure on the surface of any specified markers and then also in the volume mesh. This information is typically found in the surface_flow.dat/flow.dat or surface_flow.vtk/flow.vtk files (Tecplot/ParaView). You could, of course, add print statements to the code to output the current pressure at one of the nodes, but there is not a built in interpolation or probe function at the moment for outputting the pressure at arbitrary (x,y,z) locations. We typically do this as a post-processing step in a visualization package.

Hope this helps,

Is this function now implemented?
