May 27, 2022 at 2:16 amthehungrygraduateSubscriberI am new to Ansys and am trying to figure out the best way to process/display my results.
I have a pipe model using MHD and laminar flow. I am interested in determining the total induced magnetic field for a given column of fluid. Ideally, I would have a surface above my pipe that would be divided into equal cell sizes. I would then like to project each cell onto the pipe surface and then take a volume integral of the pipe bounded by the cell. Then each cell would contain a value that represents the total amount of induced magnetic field component beneath it.

You could create an iso-surface at a location you wish to determine the value of a variable and then compute the surface integral on that plane. I hope I understood your question right.
May 30, 2022 at 11:17 pmthehungrygraduateSubscriberThanks for the response. Let me reword my question. What is the best way to divvy up a fluid domain into three-dimensional columns so that I can perform volume integrals? Let's say I shrink down and am standing on the pipe with a vector magnetometer or gravimeter. Whatever I am measuring at some point on the surface of the pipe should be the sum of the components beneath the measuring device.
I tried drawing the scenario for just one volume but obviously, I would want to cover the entire top surface:
(not an artist)
This is a picture of the surface I am actually using:
Hopefully, all of this makes my question more clear.
