Velocity, velocity curl and vorticity in post cfd

    • Luca Capitelli

      Hi everyone, I just want to ask the difference between vorticity, velocity curl and velocity in post cfd and which one I may use to show von karman flow. Thanks!

      Hello, Velocity is a vector quantity which represents the rate of change of position of an object with respect to time. Vorticity is a curl of velocity vector. Velocity Curl represents the rigid body rotation part of velocity gradient near a given point. For further information, search using the keywords on internet. To visualize the Von Karman Flow you can make use of Vorticity contour in CFD Post.
