Plot velocity contour in local reference frame in Fluent

      I created a local Reference Frame called aoa-10-degrees.

      I have a 2D model of an airfoil in a traditional C-shaped domain.

      I want to plot a Contour of Velocity and I see I can choose X Velocity, but this is the global X velocity.

      How do I plot a contour of X velocity in the local reference frame? There does not seem to be a place to specify a reference frame or direction on the Contours dialog box.

      There isn't a custom field as such to plot relative velocity like that. You can create a custom field function so your cff would be a function of xcos-theta and ysin-theta. The other trick is to rotate the whole domain.
