Still need help for Streamlines

Post by hamed » 12 Nov 2015, 22:38

Dear Elmer friends
I asked a question about streamlines in my previous post:
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4095
but unfortunately I didn’t get my answer.
I’ll be thankful if somebody can help with this issue, since it’s really important for me.
Regards, Hamed

Hi Hamed

Why don't you use Paraview for the postprocessing. Then you would have the whole huge paraview community to ask support for. ElmerPost has not been developed in recent years and it is just hanging on for the old users.

Hi Peter
Of course, regarding Elmer it will be my first priority to start working with Paraview. However, now I'm in an emergency. I wish someone could answer my question.
Thanks, Hamed

Hi,

1. Did you look into the ElmerPost help?
2. What kind of variable do you plot?
3. How are your streamlines colored?
4. What happens if you change the number of contours?
5. Did you try the vector plot?

Dear Matthias
I really appreciate your kind attention.
1- In fact I couldn't find an appropriate help for Elmerpost (if there is any).
2- I plot fluid flow streamlines. So the variable must be velocity.
3- Colors are shown in the picture attached to my previous post.
4- It changes the number of plotted lines.
5- A very good question. It gave me clue to solve my problem.

Thanks, Hamed

Hi Hamed,

glad to hear that your problem is solved. :)
So the following might be just for the records.

1. You can find the ElmerPost help in the corresponding menu entry. AFAIK that is the only and best ElmerPost documentation there is.
3. The picture shows only the possible colors of your streamlines. I was asking how the actual lines are colored. I was expecting that this would give a hint on the nature of the variable which is represented by the coloring.

Anyway, continuing the quest for the variable is probably not necessary any more... ;)

Matthias
