CFD flow section cut with vector arrows.

This is a contour section cut thru air by a wing.  It was created in the CFD flow package.  Can anyone tell me how to change the contour to vector arrows while still maintaining a single plane section.  Thanks.

Hi,

 

To show results as vector rather than contour select F5 and choose Vector :

Under Select PostProcessing Data select Contour Vectors :

Under Contour Vector Options select the output vector type you want to plot as vector.

Next you can play with display options under View Options (F6) to display or not the output value:

And to scale arrows by magnitude / change arrow style / color ...

hope this helps,

Dennis:  As far as I know contour vectors are not available in Femap when using section cut.  Your only option might be to throw the elements on the plane in a group and display the group for a contour vector display...kinda' like this...

Not exactly what I'm looking for, but it looks a lot better than what I've been able to do.

 

Thanks for the help.
