When attempting to simulate the external flow around a building using Ansys Discovery, I encountered the following questions:
(1) I want to display contours of static pressure on the building faces only, but this does not seem to be possible with Ansys Discovery.
(2) I want to display velocity vectors on a cut plane, but this does not seem to be possible with Ansys Discovery. As an alternative I used the "direction field".
Can you please advise? Thanks.

For the first question, you could select in the countours settings: Location: All faces, Surface Display Priority: Inner and in this way you should be able to see the building faces.
For the second question, yes i do not think you can see vectors on a plane and yes direction field would probably be the closest option.
I hope this helps.

Thanks for your quick reply, Nick.
I tried your suggestion for my model, and I was able to successfully display the building pressure contours in EXPLORE mode (see below) but not in REFINE mode. In REFINE mode I do not get "inner" as a surface display priority (see second image).
I'm not sure what is the matter.

You are right, Inner surface results seem to only be available in explore at the moment. I will try to check if there is a workaround and let you know.
