NX Flow

N/A

Has anyone using NX Flow had any good results on displaying the resultant data?
What I mean is this...we've run the program, and let it solve, and post process
(all within NX FLow) but the only visual of the flow direction that we've been able
to get are little arrow "tufts". That's not a bad thing, but they fill the entire
volume of "air", which makes it hard to see whats going on at various levels. We'd
like to be able to see whats going on at the surface, and other levels up from there,
clearer.
Can NX Flow show just surface flow? flow "ribbons"? or flow animation? or do we
need to go to a better post processor?
Thanks,
Dave

Re: NX Flow

Hi Dave,
If you're interested in seeing flow at different levels in the volume, I recommend
you use the cutting plane capability in the post-processor. This feature is available
in the Postview window -> Display On -> Cutting Plane. From there, clicking on the
Options button lets you define the cutting plane location, cut side and you can
even display a ghost image of the flow domain geometry.
To animate the flow vectors, all you need to do is press the "Play" button in the
Post Control toolbar. This will animate the growth of the velocity vectors and give
you a very good idea of local flow phenomena.
We'd be happy to help on any other questions regarding NX Flow.
Regards,
Nicolas
