Vector size meaning?

      Hi all,

       

      I was under the assumption that the colour of the vectors decided the "size" of them, i.e. the "amount" of velocity in the velocity vectors. But I'm running an animation and:

       

       

      I've got colour descrepancies for the different vector values, but also different sized vectors - what does their differing size signify?

      Hi,

      Vector is drawn at the center of each cell, with the length and color of the arrows representing the velocity magnitude.

      I recommend to refer the user’s guide if you want more information on how vectors are represented.: 37.1. Basic Graphics Generation (ansys.com)

      If you are not able to access the link, please refer to this forum discussion: Using Help with links (ansys.com)

      Thank you

        Ah OK, I assumed only the colour represented the magnitude of the vector, not the size as well. Thank you!

      I couldn’t access the tutorial without the Ansys licence number (trying to source that off the college) – for anyone browsing in the future, I’ve figured out that the colour is the magnitude, while the size is the magnitude relative to the other arrows. So if there’s a large differrence between max and min, the size of max will be much larger than the minimum arrows.
