Failed to show velocity vector at cell center

Postby TecplotCDM » Mon Aug 24, 2009 11:11 am

Tried to show a velocity vector field at each cell center by using FE data format as follows:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Title ="2D FE Data"
Variables = "X", "Y", "U", "V"
Zone T=" 18.0417",StrandID=1,SolutionTime= 18.0417,Nodes= 1482,Elements= 1292, Datapacking=block, Varlocation=([3,4]=CELLCENTERED), Zonetype=FEquadrilateral
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
However, the velocity vector showed at each grid point instead of at cell center. Do you have any idea or any suggestion to fix it?

Many thanks!

Ben

You still have to tell Tecplot to draw the vectors at cell centers. See Zone Style>Points>Points To Plot>Cell Centers Near Surface.

Thanks Ben. It works.
