Creation of wall shear stress streamline in Fluent

Hi everyone,


I need to create a streamline of wall shear stress, however in Fluent by default the streamlines are created of velocity. Is this possible to be done?


Thanks very much beforehand.


Kind regards,


Fran

    Wall shear stress is a wall value, so not sure how much help pathlines will be. Contours may be a better option.

  • Hi Rob,


    Thanks for your reply. So my objective is to clip this 3D surface (see below) through a line starting from the black circle and following the X-WSS gradient till the trailing edge, so I have it splitted in a top and bottom parts respectively.

    I need to do this in Fluent to export forces on both upper/lower part of the surface you see below. Do you have any suggestion on how to do this?


    Thanks a lot in advance.


    Regards,


    Fran

    If you create an isosurface of WSS when the wall of interest is selected you'll see an edge created on the surface

    Oil flow may also be a better option within Pathlines
