Plotting Pressure Profile Along Curved 3D Pipe

Subscriber

I have a 3D u-bend pipe and I am trying to plot the pressure on the outside edge and inside edge of the pipe. The outside edge is pictured in yellow and inside edge in red in the second image below. I was looking at some sort of iso-surface, however I wasn't sure how to capture the flow as it moves through the straight sections into the bend of the pipe and back out again. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Create 5-7 circular planes between the inlet to the U-bend to the exit. Use them to plot the pressure contours and velocity vectors.n

Thank you YasserSelima, however, I want to be able to plot the pressure values only along those two edges I specified to be able to understand the change in pressure on the inside edge and outside edge of the wall. n

So, the best view would be contours on half of the pipe.nOr x-y plot, and you can plot the y-position with pressure on a line coinciding with the two lines you plotted n

could a quadric surface be utilized to plot?n

You can do it using an expression ... but this is not what I meant. I meant just drawing a line on your yellow or red lines and plot Y_position Vs. the pressure. You will see 2 values of the pressure at every Y, and you know the higher is for Upstream ...n
