Viewing the results for flow tutorials

Post by asandip »

Hello,

I am looking to view the results for the following tutorials -

1. Vortex shedding
2. Laminar Incompressible Step Flow

I have the .ep files with the results but I am not sure which reader to select in ParaView so I can view the results. Thank you for any information you can provide.

You need to change the file name in the sif to something that ends with .vtu, .ep is the elmer post processing file.
paraview will open the vtu file.

Had one follow up question, for the vortex shedding tutorial, I am looking to extract drag and lift forces so I could use it to calculate the drag and lift coefficients. I am not sure what I should have under "Save Scalars" to be able to extract the drag and the lift forces.

Thank you for any suggestions!
